Operators at Palisades Nuclear Power Plant announced yesterday that it will take until early summer to repair the plant and get it back online.
The plant was shut down after it was discovered that radioactive water had been entering Lake Michigan.
The leak came from a water storage tank that has continually caused problems at Palisades. Water from the tank dripped into the plant’s control room in May of 2011.
This time the water leaked onto the roof, down the roof drains, and out into the lake.
