WCAI's Local News Roundup: Serious Pollution Concerns at Military Base; Electric Problems at Pilgrim

Cape Cod Commission

WCAI News Director Sean Corcoran and local journalists review the top regional news stories of the week. Sean's guests this week include Anne Brennan, digital editor at The Cape Cod Times; Cape Cod Chronicle Editor Tim Wood; Sally Rose, editor of the Provincetown Banner; Josh Balling of the Nantucket Inquirer and Mirror; New Bedford Standard-Times Editorial Page Editor Jim DeArruda; and Nelson Sigelman, editor of the Martha's Vineyard Times.

Among the stories they discuss this week: The EPA is telling the military it must test for emerging contaminants on Joint Base Cape Cod or face thousands of dollars in fines; the town of Barnstable wants long-term tenants out of a local motel; design flaws have been identified at the switchyard serving the Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station, prompting unplanned, emergency shutdowns during bad weather; an adventurer is in Chatham as she waits to row across the Atlantic in a few weeks; and a Dartmouth selectman is on trial on corruption charges.
