COVERT TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — The Palisades Nuclear Plant in southwestern Michigan has restarted after being shut down because of a loss of water in a cooling system.
The facility in Van Buren County's Covert Township was shut down Friday. Plant officials say it resumed its service to the electrical grid Tuesday afternoon.
The Palisades plant is about 55 miles southwest of Grand Rapids.
At the time of the shutdown, plant officials declared the lowest of four emergency classification levels.
Officials say the shutdown posed no risk to the public and that no radioactive materials were released.
A U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission inspection was held at the plant last month after a water pump component failed.
The plant is owned by New Orleans-based Entergy Corp.
