FirstEnergy, which owns the Perry Plant, says no one was ever in danger and that the radioactive steam was contained the entire time.

They say fixing the leak is a proactive measure, helping to prevent further issues in the future.

Perry Power Plant supplies nearly a third of the electricity produced by FirstEnergy.
