Regulators keeping close tabs on Mich. nuke plant

Palisades spokesman Mark Savage said the plant has worked closely with the commission and that won't change.

"We shared all of our information with the agency," Savage said. As for the stepped up inspections, he said, "It's the NRC's process. For the NRC to conduct those, we'll support that and continue to work with them."

The plant's most recent shutdown was from Sunday until Wednesday because of an internal leak of radioactive steam.

Palisades last year was designated by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission as one of the nation's four worst-performing nuclear plants, but specific issues that put it in that category have been addressed by the plant.

The plant is owned by New Orleans-based Entergy Corp.
