U.S. Nuclear Commission to Examine Tritium Leaks

Including a tritium-contaminated leak at the Indian Point nuclear power plant, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission will undertake a five-month investigation into several recent accidental releases of radioactive water, the Commission announced Monday.

It is after three days the commission ruled that the leak at Indian Point, 35 miles (56 kilometers) north of midtown Manhattan, was not endangering anyone that the announcement came.

Tritium releases are found at four other plants, including the Braidwood Nuclear Generating Station near Chicago. The NRC has come to similar conclusions about these releases as these are where the radioactive element was found beyond the plant property.
