Bodega Head Nuclear Plant

In 1959, debate over the decision to build a PG&E nuclear power plant at Bodega Bay intensified, ultimately leading to the plan being abandoned in 1964, after construction was under way. The 142-foot-wide hole dug for the reactor, above, today is filled with water and can be viewed by visitors to Bodega Head.
