Title: Sherman Dam, and Yankee Rowe Power Station
Post by: StealthUnited on August 18, 2009, 04:21:10 PM
   I was just browsing MA in google maps, to find a Dam way up in north west MA, by the Vermont line that has a nuclear power station on it, twf? The plant is called Yankee Rowe Power Station [owned by Yankee Atomic Electric Company.]

Check it for yourselves (I used Google maps)

   42.729316,-72.929885

 Here is a website about the plant, etc. http://www.yankeerowe.com/

 Says somewhere in there that the plant is fully decommissioned and the plant site re-mediated, and that the EPA has has issued draft approval for Final Phase II so in other words, the epa is gutting out old used nuclear shit and actually engaging in cleaning up the site so its safe..er..

Yeah, I've visited the URI Bay Campus and photographed the nuclear reactor building.  It was actually built into an old WWII bunker, one part of it is now the campus security hq.  It's a neat place.

Welp, I finally I ended up trying to drive to the Sherman Dam last summer, it's very uninviting with no trespassing signs, I still ended up in a parking lot but I chickened out and banged a U-Turn. I parked by the depot bridge and debating in going in the old mill there, but I didn't. I plan to this year. I had the week off and made a point to just get out somewhere rural, I needed it. Adams MA was pretty interesting place to walk around. They were doing railroad work at Hoosac Tunnel, and a MA state trooper drove by and I was like "Not today."
