Trojan Down: Implosion of a Failed Concept

This is the link to a 10-minute video called Trojan Down, about the controlled demolition of the cooling tower of the Trojan Nuclear Power Plant near Portland, Oregon on May 21, 2006. The video was shot, edited and produced by Portland paralegal and freelance journalist Jayson Dunlap

The plant was shut down by PGE in 1993 following years of crisis and a large and growing citizen backlash.
