C-10 Research and Education Foundation (C-10, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that works to protect public health and the natural environment in the coastal New Hampshire and Massachusetts communities surrounding NextEra's Seabrook Station Nuclear Power Plant. Founded in 1991, C-10's focus is on education and safety. The organization operates a real-time radiological monitoring network, tracks and speaks out on safety and security concerns at the plant, and serves as a trusted source of information for legislators and the public. C-10 holds Seabrook Station and federal regulators accountable, advocating for the highest level of safety. Since June 2022, the current Executive Director of C-10 is Sarah Abramson.[1] Its Citizen’s Radiological Monitoring Network is administered by Michael Mansir.


C-10’s mission is to monitor and advocate for the safety of Seabrook Station nuclear power plant in order to protect public health and the environment in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and beyond.

C-10's Key Projects

Radiation Monitoring - C-10 conducts real-time field monitoring of radiological emissions as well as wind speed and direction in the NH and MA communities surrounding Seabrook Station.[2] C-10 has provided this service under contract to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts since 1992.

Research - The C-10 Board of Directors consists of citizen experts on safety at Seabrook Station, and advocates for upgraded safety and security at the plant. C-10's efforts recently brought stronger oversight of Seabrook's degraded concrete (vide infra). The C-10 Advisory Board includes experts in nuclear safety and radiological physics.

Educational Outreach - Online and at in-person events, C-10 serves as an educational resource to the public regarding Seabrook and related health and safety concerns.

2022 False Alarm at Seabrook Station

On July 12, 2022 a false alarm occurred at Seabrook Station. C-10's real-time radiation monitoring network was vital to demonstrating that there were no leaks of beta or gamma radiation detected in the air in communities surrounding the Station.[3]

Alkali-Silica Reaction at Seabrook Station

C-10 has had a long-established interest in the stability of the concrete at Seabrook Station. The concrete at Seabrook Station is known to be suffering from an irreversible alkali-silica reaction. C-10 has weighed in on the re-licensing of Seabrook Station by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission's Atomic Safety and Licensing Board[4] although their recommendations and concerns went largely unheeded, as the plant was provisionally re-licensed in 2020 for another 20 years. The Atomic Safety and Licensing Board accepted plant-owner NextEra's concrete monitoring proposal.[5] C-10 continues to work with local and federal legislators, and community groups, to advocate for transparency and safety of Seabrook Station.[6]
