Pilgrim: Tritium >limits again

We note briefly now that the groundwater sampling at Entergy's Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station (General Electric BWR plant) near Plymouth, Massachusetts has revealed a rise in tritium again, above limits. This has been an ongoing problem at this site, and serious investigation as to the source is underway. As before, this tritium has been found by the groundwater sampling program which is designed to catch this sort of thing BEFORE it gets into any publicly available water, or the general water table, so that Entergy is reporting that no one in the public is at any risk.

Look here for a very brief and very new article.
