In a settlement with the DEP, the environmental groups had sought in state courts to force the agency to issue a permit that they hoped would drastically reduce the number of fish killed by the nuclear generating stations, which pull in a huge amount of water from Delaware Bay in order to run.
In the settlement, an agreement was reached by all parties that the NJDEP will issue a draft discharge permit to PSE&G Salem Nuclear Generating Station by June 30, 2015, according to the release.
