VAN BUREN COUNTY The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has signed off on recent repairs to the Palisades Nuclear Power Plant.

WSJM reports that the NRC is satisfied with work done on leaking nozzles, which allowed some radioactive water to spill into Lake Michigan last month.

However they warned the facility though to keep an eye on the ceiling of the control room. They say cracks in the cement need to be fixed before Palisades' next restart from a refueling outage.
