Rancho Seco

Photo Title

The Rancho Seco Nuclear Generating Station is a decommissioned nuclear power plant in Herald, California.
All power generating equipment has been removed from the plant and the now-empty cooling towers remain a prominent part of the local landscape. Also scattered throughout the area around the plant are abandoned air raid sirens that at one time would have warned people of a radiation release from the station.
