Some 150 litres of low-level radioactive waste water was accidently leaked at the Temelín nuclear power plant during a maintenance operation, the spokesman for the plant confirmed on Thursday. He stressed that the accident took place within a secure zone and that at no time were employees or the environment in any danger. Anti-nuclear energy activists, including the head of an NGO called Jihočeské matky, have charged that Temelín should be well past growing or teething pains by now. Temelín’s spokesman, by contrast, said the level of radiation which had been measured in the direct vicinity of the accident was was “eight times lower than radiation to which passengers were exposed on long commercial flights”.
