LOS ANGELES (AP) - Crews have repaired a pipe that leaked flammable hydrogen gas at the San Onofre nuclear power plant and officials say there was no danger to the public.
The operator of the coastal plant, Southern California Edison, says a small leak in a pipe fitting was discovered in a non-nuclear part of Unit 2 on Sunday. Edison says the hydrogen dissipated in the air. Repairs were completed Monday.
Edison submitted a report to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
The plant located between Los Angeles and San Diego hasn't produced power since Jan. 31 because of excessive wear in its reactors, and it's not clear when, or if, it will return to service.
