C-10 is an acronym for Citizens Within the Ten-Mile Radius, a 5,000 member grassroots organization founded in 1986 to challenge evacuation plans for the Seabrook Station nuclear reactor. C-10 Research and Education Foundation evolved from this group, and was incorporated in 1991 as a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. C-10’s mission is to address the health and safety issues related to the Seabrook Station nuclear power plant.
C-10 is concerned that people living near nuclear power plants are exposed to continuous, low-level ionizing radiation that the industry and NRC do not adequately monitor or document. Nuclear power plants routinely release radioactive waste into the air, water, and soil.
Current projects include:
– Independent citizen’s monitoring of airborne radiation levels within the ten mile radius of the Seabrook Station reactor.
– Comprehensive program of disease-monitoring and surveillance for the 23 communities within the ten-mile radius of the Seabrook Station reactor.
– Sea life (mussel) study near the outfall of the Seabrook Station reactor.
– Working directly with science educators in surrounding schools and universities to provide objective and factual information about health effects of ionizing radiation, nuclear waste issues and alternative energy.
– Hosting public forums.
