Minnesota nuclear plant to restart in next week after leak repair - spokesperson

A Minnesota nuclear power plant owned by Xcel Energy Inc will be restarted in the next week after being shut down due to a leak at the plant, a company spokesperson said on Tuesday. The Monticello Nuclear Generating Plant was fully powered down on March 25 to repair a leak of water containing the radioactive chemical tritium from the facility, Xcel's Theo Keith said. Crews have repaired the leak, which Minneapolis-based Xcel Energy said did not pose risks to public heath or affect electricity supply to the 500,000 customers of the plant.

Energy company: Minnesota leak fixed, plant to reopen soon

A faulty pipe that allowed water containing a radioactive isotope of hydrogen to leak at a Minnesota nuclear power plant has been repaired and the plant will return to service in the next week, a spokesman for the energy company said Tuesday. Meanwhile, a state agency said a fish kill that claimed at least 230 fish in the Mississippi River near Xcel Energy’s Monticello Nuclear Generating Plant was caused by a water temperature change resulting from the shutdown of the plant, not by any chemicals leaking into the river. The nuclear plant, about 38 miles (60 kilometers) northwest of Minneapolis, was fully powered down around 7 a.m. Saturday to fix the leaky pipe discovered last week, Xcel Energy spokesman Theo Keith said.

A leak of what was believed to be hundreds of gallons of water containing tritium was discovered this week from a temporary fix at the Monticello Nuclear Generating Plant, where 400,000 gallons (1.5 million liters) of water with tritium leaked in November, Xcel Energy said in a statement Thursday.

Regulators: Nuclear plant leak didn't require public notice

Minnesota regulators knew four months ago that radioactive waste had leaked from a nuclear power plant in Monticello — but they didn’t announce anything about the leak until this week. The delay in notifying the public about the November leak raised questions about public safety and transparency, but industry experts said Friday there was never a public health threat. “This is something that we struggle with because there is such concern with anything that is nuclear,” said Victoria Mitlyng, a spokesperson with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
