Another well has tested positive for Tritium contamination at Vermont Yankee, the second in two weeks.

VPR's John Dillon says this one, Well No. 6, is near the radioactive waste building on the nuclear plant's grounds. The latest discovery could mean that a new leak has developed in pipes that Entergy said didn't exist last year.

Listen to Bob Kinzel's interview with John Dillon.
