Title:
Davis Besse Nuclear Power Station, Lake Erie, Ohio, Harbor
This nuclear power plant has a single reactor located on the southwest shore of Lake Erie near Oak Harbor, Ohio. It is the 57th commercial power reactor to commence building in the United States of America (construction began on September 1, 1970) and the fiftieth to come on-line.

The plant was originally jointly owned by Cleveland Electric Illuminating (CEI) and Toledo Edison (TE). As of 2006, it is operated by the FirstEnergy Nuclear Operating Company subsidiary of FirstEnergy Corp. The plant was named for former TE Chairman John K. Davis and former CEI Chairman Ralph M. Besse.

According to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Davis-Besse has been the source of two of the top five most dangerous nuclear incidents in the United States since 1979.
