Indian Point unit 3 shut down to repair clean steam leak

BUCHANAN – Indian Point Unit 3 nuclear power plant was removed from service Thursday morning following discovery of a leak of clean steam from a pipe on the non-nuclear side of the plant overnight.  There was no release of radioactivity and no threat to the safety of workers or the public, Entergy said.

It was determined the leak could be repaired only while the plant was shut down. It will be returned to service when the maintenance work has been completed.

Unit 2 is operating at full power.
