PALISADE NUCLEAR EMERGENCY. RSOE SITE.
I'm sorry I can't seem to put up the site. I don't know what I'm doing wrong.
So this may be what has been going on. There are two news reports dated Now.
COVERT TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WZZM) -- Operators of the Palisades nuclear plant in Van Buren County removed the facility from service Tuesday to repair a leak in a key water system.
Entergy workers took the plant offline around 6:50 p.m. Tuesday.
According to a news release from an Entergy spokesman, workers had been monitoring leakage from the plant's safety injection/refueling water tank for several days. but by 1:41 p.m. Tuesday, the leakage had surpassed the limits they set so the tank was declared inoperative.
The 300,000-gallon tank holds water that also contained boric acid, which is used in pressurized water nuclear reactor systems. The water is used to flood the reactor cavity when the plant is offline for refueling. The tank also provides water to cool the reactor core for extended periods in the event of emergencies.
The leaky tank in question at the Palisades Nuclear Power Plant in South Haven holds 300,000 gallons of water in case of emergencies or a planned refueling outage. In a written statement issued late Tuesday night a Palisades spokesman says workers have been collecting and analyzing water that’s leaked from the tank.
On Tuesday workers collected 31 gallons of water. At that point administrators declared the tank "inoperable" and shut down the plant down while workers fix the leak.

From Genesee co.Flint area I see A10s and blackhawks alot lately. Michigan would be the perfect KEEP. surounded with large fresh water lakes with a small land border to defend. But to attack here would be like pokeing a hornets nest. Everyone I personally know have rifles, shotguns, pistols and woman that will back them up. These people can get mean quickly and are hard......I believe something happend in Lake Huron.

OK, another quick update. I just spoke with the Michigan Department of Corrections and the facility I spoke of in earlier posts is not a MDOC facility and they claim they are not rebuilding it either. I am going to do some digging around to see if I can find who owns the land, if it is state or private now, and just why it is being worked on. Now I am suspicious but still not ready to draw any conclusions.
I am going to go drive by again and see what I can find out. Will update when I return. And thanks to all who have posted while I was away. I never thought this thread would go this far.
Therefore, The Waterloo Township Board, Jackson County Michigan calls upon Department of Corrections
Director, Mr. Daniel H. Heyns to immediately begin demolition of Camp Waterloo, and to restore it to its
original natural state in a timely manner.
Corrections director, former sheriff Dan Heyns visits old prison camp to assess cleanup progress
The facility, closed in 2001, looked as though the department simply walked away from it, giving it an apocalyptic feel, said Heyns, who was heading from Maute Road to Brighton to visit another closed camp. “It’s almost like there was a nuclear blast.”
He would like to see the state appropriate some dollars to raze the camp. The cost of tearing down the buildings has been estimated at $800,000 or more, a large sum at a time of budgetary difficulties.
Scripter appreciates the cleanup efforts, but said the camp should go. She would rather see trees, deer and wild animals than dilapidated structures. “The only good thing for it now is to be torn down and turned into state land.”

The Palisades nuclear power plant is shut down. Officials at the plant removed it from service due to what is being described as a "small leak" in the plant's safety injection and refueling water tank. That tank holds as much as 300-thousand gallons of water that is used remove heat from the reactor's core in the event of a coolant accident and to increase "shutdown safety margin." It's not known how long the troubled facility will remain out of service. Palisades has been ranked by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission as one of the four worst nuclear plants in the nation.
