Covert, Mich. (WZZM) The Palisades nuclear facility is back online after being shutdown for steam leak in a valve at the plant.

The leak was discovered last Sunday during a routine check of the plant's auxilary building.

During the outage, workers removed the leaking component and the associated drain valve and replaced them with new components.

Plant operators will slowly increase reactor power levels over the next several days to return Palisades to full power operation.

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has been keeping close watch on Palisades following a number of minor incidence at the plant.
