8/8/2011 - Nine Mile Point nuclear plant shuts down - NY


SCRIBA, N.Y. — Officials at Constellation Energy are investigating a leakage in a containment structure that caused the shutdown of the Nine Mile Point Unit 2 reactor on Lake Ontario over the weekend. The Oswego Palladium-Times reports that the reactor remained shut down Sunday after a "higher-than-normal leakage" was discovered inside the facility's drywell (http://(link tracking not allowed)/qVJmf3 ). The incident was classified as an "unusual event," the lowest level of nuclear power plant emergencies.

It's classified as the lowest level of nuclear emergencies, but still worth a mention.

I see this same power plant had an issue back in May. Thought it worth mentioning there is yet another issue.

"highter-than-normal leakage"?? Does that indicate that there is always "normal leakage" from the nuclear facilities? A thought that just crossed my mind when reading those words. What is considered normal leakage?
