06 May 2013 Before Sunday’s shutdown of Palisades Nuclear Power Plant, about 79 gallons of diluted [?!?] radioactive water were released into Lake Michigan, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission said Monday, May 6. The cause of the increase in volume of leaking water is unknown, according to an event report Palisades filed with the NRC. “The licensee has been operating with SIRW leakage at a rate of less than 34 gallons per day. The leakage has increased for unknown reasons to a calculated value of approximately 90 gallons per day,” the report stated. The plant began the shutdown at 1:12 a.m. Sunday after the tank was declared inoperable.
