Cleanup under way after sulfuric acid leak at Cook Nuclear Plant

Cleanup of a leak at the Cook Nuclear Plant is going on right now.

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission reports more than 1,000 gallons of sulfuric acid leaked into a containment area.

The agency says no acid made it into the environment or nearby drains.

Staff found the leak yesterday.

They believe a faulty gasket could be the cause.

The containment area has a reinforced concrete floor and walls.
