Leak at FPL Nuclear Plant

Florida Today:
A small radioactive leak seeped into a pond at Florida Power & Light’s St. Lucie nuclear reactor, but posed no risk to the public, the company said.

Company officials said “drips” of tritium were discovered, but they believe they’ve already found and stopped the source. The leak was not dangerous to employees or others and wouldn’t affect any drinking water, the Juno Beach-based company told the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
