2.0 Site Status Summary

The Connecticut Yankee Atomic Power plant is located in Haddam, CT, on the east bank of the Connecticut River. The majority of the surrounding area is rural and wooded. The independent spent fuel storage installation is located approximately 3/4 mile from the former reactor plant area.

In 1996, Connecticut Yankee Atomic Company permanently ceased power operations at the Haddam Neck Plant. As of March 30, 2005, all spent fuel and greater than Class C waste have been transferred to the ISFSI. All plant related structures have been removed down to four feet below grade. This leaves concrete structures in only a few areas of the site, such as the reactor building basement, the discharge canal tunnel and part of the spent fuel building.

Portions of the original site boundary, remote from the plant, have been removed from the license under phased release. When decommissioning activities and the phased releases are completed, the ISFSI will remain as a part 50 license.
