Water leak at Bruce Power handled according to procedure, says company
There were no impacts as a result of a water leak at the Bruce A generating station, according to a Bruce Power statement.
Last Wednesday, with Unit 3 in a planned shutdown, crews encountered an issue with a pump as they aligned the unit for an inspection program. As a result, a quantity of water leaked in the area of the pump and was contained within a diked area immediately adjacent to the pump, as designed.
“This area is in place to collect leakage if it occurs,” Bruce Power spokesperson John Peevers said in a statement. “Crews have cleaned up the water and there are no impacts to staff, the public or the environment.”
The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission was notified of the incident. Bruce A Units 1, 2 and 4 and the four Bruce B units continue to provide electricity to the Ontario grid.
