The V.C. Summer atomic power plant, which has been shut down since early November because of a pipe leak, is expected to begin producing energy in a few days.

Dominion Energy says it has fixed the small leak in a pipe valve that allowed radioactive water to drip out. The company declined to say when the plant would be fully operational, but spokesman Ken Holt said that can take several days.

Holt, who said Dominion is still investigating the cause, said water that leaked was part of the reactor cooling system. While the water came in contact with nuclear fuel in the reactor, the water never escaped the plant’s containment building and into the environment, Holt said.
