BRATTLEBORO — A leak in Vermont Yankee’s feedwater piping was discovered to be coming from a pinhole in a weld sealing a plug in the pipe.The pinhole was found to be in reduced-diameter piping where a 24-inch pipe narrows down to 10 inches.

“This feed water leak is unrelated to the leak in the nuclear reactor’s water clean-up system valve gasket which was reported on Wednesday,” said Larry Smith, communications director for Yankee. That valve work is now scheduled for next week.
