ABSTRACT
This article presents information regarding Shoreham Nuclear Powerplant. Ordered in 1967, and constructed between 1973-84, Long Island Lighting Co.'s 800-MW Shoreham Nuclear Power Station in Brookhaven, New York, was the victim of intense local opposition to nuclear power, especially after the Three Mile Island accident in 1979. After that accident, New York state and Suffolk County refused to take part in developing the emergency evacuation plans that were required for an operating license from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
