Trojan Nuclear Plant Implosion – May 21, 2006

May 23, 2006

The cooling tower of the Trojan Nuclear Power Plant in Rainier, Oregon was imploded by engineers from Controlled Demolition, Inc on Sunday morning. I spent Saturday night with a group of activists who worked close to 20 years to shut down the plant until they were successful in 1993. We rented 15 rooms at a roadside motel in Kalama, Washington and rose very early to find good spots to view the event. I will be producing a documentary about the weekend. In the meantime, click here for a quick video of the implosion I shot from a vantage point in a neighborhood on a bluff in Kelso, Washington, across the mighty Columbia River from the cooling tower.
