Nuclear Plant's Plans Upset Neighbors

For years, the people living in the shadow of the Connecticut Yankee nuclear power plant consoled themselves with thoughts of when the building would be torn down, the soil deemed safe and the wooded, riverfront land returned to nature. That might not happen under a plan that Connecticut Yankee unveiled Wednesday to about 50 feisty plant neighbors from Haddam Neck, the small borough of Haddam that has been host to the plant for 40 years. Connecticut Yankee President Wayne Norton announced the company is getting ready to advertise about 500 acres of the property for sale. Connecticut Yankee will soon start soliciting confidential "expressions of interest" from qualified developers, Norton told residents.
