Low levels or not, if you have ever worked in the production sector you know at some point you do things that you are not supposed to. I will cost less to just dump the water than to house it somewhere safely until it can be treated, I really doubt this is a case of "hey a hose broke" tee hee...
It's much more likely someone was told to do it. Any amount of un-natural radiation is too much. Stop trying to down play it like it's harmless because we don't immediately see any negative effects. There is a reason the water needs to be treated before leaving the plant otherwise they wouldn't have bothered in the first place.

Canada got jealous of Japan. "We want nuclear problems too!" they said.

70,000 is like less than a pool full of water. :/

You do realize that nuclear power plants are built next to large bodies of water for the sole purpose of using that water during the power generation process? The water wasn't getting "dumped" to save on storage--part of the water usage cycle involves exposure of the water to the radioactive material for control of the reactions, then subsequent "cleaning" of the water. (or the water is used as a source for the eventual steam production). There's no gain in "bypassing" this process, as it's essential to controlling the reactions, and it doesn't cut down on operating costs to intentionally "leak" 72k gallons of water when literally millions upon millions of water is used and recycled per day.

It was an accident, a harmless one at that, and quite inconsequential.

Also, tritium does occur naturally.

Based on the alarmist and unnecessarily frightened responses to the initial headline, from people in this forum alone, perhaps a headline that conveyed a more appropriate level of concern would have been good.

This shouldn't affect your decision to take a nice walk by the lake, enjoy it.

Yes, the bombing was 65 years ago, but because of proper cleanup responses, the cities became habitable much sooner than "NOW". Edit: The bottom line being that even in the event of a nuclear disaster, if the correct cleanup response is enacted, the area can be lived in again much sooner than if the radiated material is not removed.

just wondering...
agree with You on that one... cant imagine they didnt notice leak earlier...
Yes, in this case, it is okay. At least from a health perspective. Remember that we are continually receiving low level doses of "radiation" all the time.

However, if we infer that the leak is indicative of a poorly managed nuclear facility, then no, it is not okay.

Yeah it is. Unless Lake Ontario has moved up north of Vermont.

Thank you for putting it into perspective for people. It's like people don't realize that this is only about one 6,943,360,501,421,630th (not a made up number) of the amount of water in Lake Ontario.

You mean the pre-Chernobyl accident that was highly uneventful and was successfully contained?

Way to fail AP. Way to NOT mention that the leaked stuff was tritium, with a low level of radiation AND a very short life span. ******* press makes me want to kill babies.
I suggest you follow the quote I have above this and steal that guy's avatar.

This accident is like if a truck carrying oil flipped on the highway. OK, maybe I'm exaggerating because that would be worse.
