2.0 Site Status Summary

The plant was shut down in May 1972, and in February 1975, was placed in SAFSTOR until 1986 when phased dismantlement began with removal of support buildings, contaminated soil, and some material in the containment. The owner submitted a DP in 1996, which became the PSDAR. All spent fuel has been removed from the site. NRC approved an amendment request in 1998 to allow dismantlement under 10 CFR 50.59. The reactor vessel with internals, steam generator, and pressurizer have been shipped to Barnwell for disposal. The owner submitted a LTP in February 1999, but had to resubmit the plan in February 2000 to provide sufficient information for an acceptance review. NRC approved the LTP on March 28, 2003. The facility license was terminated and the site released for unrestricted use on November 7, 2005.
