Palisades to replace tank bottom after leak


We have an update to the condition of the Palisades Nuclear Plant.

A leak in a storage tank will be fixed.

Plant officials say a small crack along a nozzle at the bottom of the tank was found after several inspections.

They've chosen to completely replace the bottom of the tank.

They believe the crack allowed some non-radioactive water to be leaked into Lake Michigan.

The work should be done by early summer.
