Another Entergy Reactor Site LEAKING Tritium...NRC Promises To Help Cover It Up!

OK, we extrapolated based on the experience here at Indian Point that the NRC will help in a cover up of the newly found Tritium Leak at Entergy's Palisades reactor site, but you can bet money that Neil Sheehan will be running to the news media shortly claiming there is no immediate risk to the General Public of Michigan, and that Entergy is within their license allowances since the tritium has not left the site yet...sounds like a COVER UP TO US.

Radioactive substance found in well outside Palisades plant

COVERT (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Entergy, the owner of the Palisades Nuclear Plant, has informed the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission that a radioactive substance has been found in one of their monitoring wells.

The substance found was tritium, a radioactive isotope of hydrogen. It is often used in watch dials and exit signs that glow in the dark. Curious here...have you ever seen the lengths that the NRC goes to to retrieve missing exit signs? BUT, let a reactor leak tritium, and its fine.

The amount of tritium was relatively low, although over the limit allowed in drinking water. The water in the well is not used for drinking, so Entergy was not technically required to report the findings. A representative said that they made the report as a conservative measure. Entergy did make the county and local municipalities aware of the situation. This is the same bull shit response Entergy gives the citizens around Indian Point!
