The Palisades Nuclear Plant near South Haven, Mich., has returned to service following an outage of 43 days.

The plant was shut down on May 5 when a half-inch crack was found along a weld in the nozzle at the bottom of a water tank.

Palisades says the tank bottom has been redesigned and now features newer and more reliable subflooring.

The nozzles, which transport water to and from the tank, have also been redesigned and replaced.
