Leak Discovered at San Onofre

The San Juan Capistrano Patch is reporting that the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station have identified another leak.  Acccording to the story:

Workers at the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station are set to replace a pipe fitting after routine maintenance turned up a small hydrogen gas leak in Unit 2 at the plant.

And from the “Pardon me if I don’t feel reassured” files:

According to the company, the leak isn’t a safety risk because the flammable gas is dissipating into the open air around the pipe, and the pipe is near the turbine building on the non-nuclear side of the plant.
