Monticello Power Plant Tritium Leak Information
Saint Paul Regional Water Service (SPRWS) is aware of the Xcel Energy Monticello Power Plant tritium leak and is partnering with the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) to assess the situation. MDH continues to monitor the situation with ongoing testing. At this time, there is no evidence tritium contaminated water has reached the Mississippi River, which is the primary source of SPRWS drinking water. As a precautionary measure, SPRWS is developing plans to ensure the water we deliver to customers is not impacted in the event contamination does reach the river.
Detailed information along with updates associated with the leak can be found on the MDH website.
