Nuclear Waste From Pilgrim Moved To Storage Facility

The remainder of spent nuclear fuel cooling in a pool at the shuttered Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station has been transferred to containers and moved to an on-site dry-storage location known as an independent spent fuel storage facility.

The work was completed Dec. 13 and means the plant’s reactor building has been emptied of all fissile material, according to Holtec, the company overseeing Pilgrim's decommissioning process.
