Congressman Upton Very Upset About Palisades Leak



79 gallons of "mildly radioactive" water got into Lake Michigan over the weekend from a leak at the Palisades nuclear power plant. Congressman Fred Upton is not happy.

Listen:



Upton says he continues to be told by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and Palisades officials that the leak poses no threat to public safety, but he wants more answers.

Listen:



The leak has prompted the closure of Palisades for repairs. It's not known when those will be complete. A leak in the same tank shut the power plant down last year.
