The Yankee Rowe Community Advisory Board (CAB) was established in 1998 to promote open communication, public involvement, and education on remaining decommissioning and fuel storage activities at the Yankee Rowe plant.

With the completion of demolition of the plant in 2005, the CAB transitioned under a new charter to a Fuel Storage and Removal Community Advisory Board to promote and enhance open communication, public involvement and education on the interim storage of spent fuel and high-level waste at the former Yankee Rowe plant site and to advocate for its prompt removal as required by federal statute and contract with the U.S. Department of Energy. The first meeting of the Fuel Storage and Removal Community Advisory Board (CAB) was held October 12, 2005.

The CAB represents diverse interests of the local community with members from local towns, government, business and organizations.

The Yankee Rowe CAB last met for its annual meeting on November 7, 2019. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the previously scheduled November 5, 2020 annual meeting and the 2021 annual meeting were deferred until a date to be determined in spring 2022. When the next CAB meeting is scheduled, details will be posted here. The meeting agenda will include status reports on the Independent Spent Fuel Storage Installation and the national spent nuclear fuel program, as well as a public comment period. For information about the next CAB meeting please contact ISFSI Manager John Macdonald at 413-424-5261 extension 304 or jmacdonald@3yankees.com.
