Technicians Restarting Vermont Yankee

Vermont Yankee nuclear power plant is in the process of starting up again.

Vermont Yankee spokesman Larry Smith says it's expected the plant will be reconnected to the grid sometime today.

The plant was shut down Sunday after a leak of radioactive water was spotted during routine surveillance.

Technicians found the leak was coming from a welded-over section of pipe in the feed water system. The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission has said the leak posed no danger to the public.
