Palisades, Cook Respond To Report On "Higher Level" Problems

A federal report says Michigan's three nuclear power plants are fairly average in the number of safety violations, but two stand out in the number of higher level problems. The Government Accountability Office report obtained by The Associated Press says America's 65 nuclear plants averaged four higher level and 170 total violations in 2000-2012. It says Palisades had eight higher level and 234 total violations. Palisades spokeswoman Lindsay Rose gave our newsroom a brief comment in reaction to the report.


The report says the twin-reactor Donald Cook plant in Berrien County's Lake Township had 11 higher level and 179 total violations, but spokesman Bill Schalk says they haven't seen the document.


Schalk added in a written statement that Indiana Michigan Power's figures don't add up to what the AP is reporting.
