From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Bailly Nuclear Power Plant was proposed by the Northern Indiana Public Service Company (NIPSCO) in 1967. It was to be a 644 MW plant located at the corporation's Bailly site near the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, but it was never built.[1][2]

Concerned Citizens Against the Bailly Nuclear Site was established in 1972. The Concerned Citizens concentrated on opposition through legal action in the courts, the Atomic Energy Commission, and later the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. When NIPSCO decided in August 1981 to cancel plans for the plant, the Concerned Citizens group had achieved its primary objective, and it disbanded in 1982.[1]
