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.


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.


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.
