Entergy Admits 2005 Tritium Leak

mdsolar writes “The leaking Vermont Yankee nuclear power plant was hit last week by a whistleblower allegation that a previous tritium leak had occurred. Now the parent company, Entergy, has admitted the occurrence of at least one prior leak to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. This is particularly significant for three reasons: because the leak occurred in pipes that company officials later testified under oath did not exist, because the Vermont Senate will likely soon vote to deny Entergy a needed approval to extend the power plant’s license for another 20 years, and because President Obama just put taxpayers on the hook for new nuclear power plants in Georgia.”
