Kevin Kamps, a radioactive waste specialist with Beyond Nuclear: There’s radioactive contamination in the water [that was leaking at Palisades nuclear power plant].

We also hear there was a hot particle detected that had a pretty high radiation dose rate coming off of it that was found in the tank.

So there’s significant radioactive contamination in the tank.
