NSP investigates issue within the cooling system, cleans up at Tufts Cove


**** NSP Media Release

Yesterday, a NSP team at Tufts Cove noticed a light oily sheen on the water along the edge of the plant.​ ​

A preliminary investigation indicates a minor issue within the cooling system environment which allowed a small amount of oily water from the plant to seep out and create a light sheen on the outer edges of the plant along the water.

As a precaution, staff deployed booms to ensure the small area was contained.​ The sheen was reported to our regulators as per the protocol.​ ​ They were on site yesterday and indicated they were satisfied with response.

The clean up is substantially complete, however, booms are being left in place for a few days as an extra precaution.
