The radioactive leak came from a pipe between two buildings at the Monticello Nuclear Power Plant in Minnesota

Officials are continuing the process of removing a leak of 400,000 gallons (1.5 million liters) of radioactive water from a nuclear power plant in the US state of Minnesota.

The company, “Excel Energy”, which operates the nuclear power plant, said that the leak was fully contained at the plant site, and was not detected outside its scope.

Minnesota officials said there was no immediate public health risk from the spill.

The leak was first detected last November, but state officials did not announce it until yesterday, Thursday.
