BRATTLEBORO — The Vermont Yankee nuclear plant sprung another radioactive leak Thursday, this time in a more safety-sensitive area of the plant.

Power production at the reactor was reduced to about 40 percent by 4 p.m. in order to allow the immediate repairs to the seemingly small leak in a feedwater line.

Robert Williams, spokesman for Entergy Nuclear, said the leak amounted to “60 drops a minute,” but warranted immediate attention.
