Up to 250,000 fish a day to be killed by cooling system for new Hinkley Point C nuclear power station

Burnham-on-sea.com 21st July 2019 Marine and conservation groups say plans for a water-cooling system at the new Hinkley Point C nuclear power station near Burnham-On-Sea will kill up to 250,000 fish a day and must be altered or scrapped. Hinkley Point
nuclear power’s cooling system has this week been described in the
national press as an underwater ‘plughole’ that will suck in 130,000
litres of sea water a second. Along with the water, it will also draw in
thousands of fish into the two inlet tunnels that are as wide as a
double-decker bus and span two miles out into the Bristol Channel, west of
Burnham-On-Sea.
