San Onofre, or the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station, is a nuclear power plant located near the Boneyard and Irvine in New California.


On October 23, 2077 disposal trucks were sent off from the San Onofre nuclear power plant to dispose of nuclear waste. However, due to nearby detonations of nuclear weapons following the start of the Great War the drivers instead were diverted to Searchlight. Their local fire department was only able to accommodate two of the three trucks in their station, so the third headed for Cottonwood Cove.[1] It was there that the driver tried to illegally dump it down into the cove and for some unknown reason was unable to complete the crime.[2]


San Onofre is mentioned only in Fallout: New Vegas.
