It would seem a couple nuclear plants in the area are experiencing issues.
This one is in South Carolina. Another event just occurred in North Carolina at the Wake
County Nuclear Plant
Related? No evidence of that, just proximity and timing.
Federal regulators say more than 100 gallons of water with traces of a radioactive hydrogen isotope have leaked at a nuclear power plant in South
Carolina. The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission said Wednesday that the tritium leak isn't an emergency, but says the leak could reach groundwater.
The NRC says the leak was found late Tuesday in a fiberglass discharge pipe. Duke Energy, which runs the plant, has started taking steps to fix the
problem. The NRC says Duke is putting in a temporary sump pump to try to isolate the leak. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency says drinking
water that contains tritium can increase the risk of developing cancer.
Okay, both plants involved in these two separate "events" are operated by Duke Energy
