Monticello taken off line due to tritium leak
A recurring leak of water containing tritium has led to the temporary shutdown of Xcel Energy's Monticello nuclear power plant, in Minnesota.
“While the leak continues to pose no risk to the public or the environment, we determined the best course of action is to power down the plant and perform the permanent repairs immediately,” said Chris Clark, president of Xcel Energy–Minnesota, North Dakota, and South Dakota, in a March 23 news release. “We are continuing to work with and inform our state, federal, city, and county leaders in the process.”
Powering down the reactor to shutdown condition started last Friday.

Nuclear instrumentation, controls, and human-machine interface technologies are a vital component of the next generation of advanced reactors. The pace of advances in novel ICHMI technologies and their deployment has increased in recent years, and they are essential to achieving the enhanced safety and improved economics of advanced reactors. Speakers from across the ICHMI community will discuss recent successes, what we have learned, and preview exciting advances and opportunities to assure success with deploying the next generation of reactors.
