Jan 31st, 2012 | By | Category: General

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commissionhas issued a “Notice of Violation” to the Connecticut Yankee nuclear facility over the apparent partial ownership by two foreign companies of the dismantled power plant on the Connecticut River in Haddam Neck.

Although the plant was idled in 1996 and fully decommissioned in 2007, it is still considered a nuclear site because 1,100 spent fuel rods are stored there, in concrete casks in a guarded zone over the river.
