Unit 1 at the Susquehanna nuclear power plant in Pennsylvania was reconnected to the grid following a maintenance outage.
The unit was manually shut down on June 6 to address a water leak inside the unit’s containment structure. During a thorough inspection, workers identified and reported to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission a second minor leak from a pipe beneath the reactor vessel found two days later.
Unit 2 continued to operate during the outage.
