USA: nuclear plant shut down on leaks

The Palisades nuclear power plant (Michigan, not too far from Chicago) has been shut down because of dangerous leaks.

As time passes the old nukes are all bound to become a costly source of problems that will surely be in all cases much more trouble than all the energy they generated ever. Even after decommission, nukes are a serious problem and must be kept under watch forever.

Update: authorities acknowledged 79 gallons (some 300 liters)  of "slightly radioactive" water released to Lake Michigan. → EneNews.
