Duke Energy has submitted its decommissioning plan for the Crystal River nuclear plant to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
The selected option is expected to be completed in 2074, capping more than a century of activity on the site.
About 275 employees remain at the plant — members of the facility’s decommissioning transition organization — in addition to security personnel. Additional contract workers will be brought in as needed.
