Event Report: Minnesota nuke leaked tritium late last year

After reviewing an incident from the last week of November, 2011, the Prairie Island nuclear power plant decided that the seriousness of the accident required an Event Report to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Prairie Island reported that 3,900 gallons of water containing 9,430 picocuries of tritium per liter leaked from the Warehouse Condensate Return system between November 22 and November 30. The defective Condensate Return Pump has now been replaced.
