A second radioactive leak at the Palisades nuclear plant has been fixed.
``I'm happy to say we have found the source of the leak,'' said Mark Savage, the public-affairs and communications director for Palisades, ``and have repaired that.''
The new leak was at a turn in a pipe and was because of the failure of a weld, Savage said. The pipes and welds are stainless steel.
``We think it was during original construction,`` Savage said.
In June, Savage told the Van Buren County Board of Commissioners that tritium levels were rising in monitoring wells.
