Environmental Impacts Of Sand And Gravel Operations In
Millstone is responsible for about 1.6 billion in economic impact in Connecticut each year, according to a 2016 analysis by Chmura, a consultant contracted by Dominion. The facility employs about 1,100 full-time workers and 400 full-time contractors, Holt says. It has two operating nuclear reactors, Units 2 and 3. During month-long refueling outages, which occur every 18 months on each reactor, 800-1,000 additional workers are brought in. A third reactor, Unit 1, was permanently shut down by Northeast Utilities in 1998.
