Xcel officials answer questions from media, public about tritium leak

Chris Clark, president of Xcel's Minnesota operations, told reporters that a container being used to catch water from the leaking pipe spilled over. The new leak is much smaller than the original one back in November. Clark says there's still no threat to the public.

Xcel is hosting an open house on Monday at the Monticello Community Center from 5 to 8 p.m.
