Virginia plant, closed since earthquake, reports water leak to nearby lake

Last Friday, operators at the North Anna nuclear power plant reported that approximately 272 gallons of cooling water had been discharged to a nearby lake. As reported by WAMU, American University’s radio station:

The leak was reportedly caused by a faulty motor operated valve in the system’s cooling tower, which prompted a report to the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality when it was detected on October 14.
