SAFETY IS A TOP PRIORITY
Radiation safety and industrial safety have always been the primary goals of all activities at the Connecticut Yankee site. During decommissioning, workers involved in the removal of plant equipment adhered to established radiological protection practices, engineering processes, and quality assurance procedures to ensure that radiation exposure was minimal and worker safety protected. Now that decommissioning is complete, CY's concentration on safety continues with a primary focus on safely and securely storing the spent nuclear fuel until the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) fulfills its obligation to dispose of the materials.
