Minor leak in the nuclear reactor on campus:

North Carolina State University officials said Thursday that there is a low-level water leak in the liner that surrounds its nuclear reactor but that it poses no danger to the public.

University spokesman Keith Nichols described the leak as the size of a pinhead and that it was leaking about 10 gallons per hour from the 15,000-gallon tank.

Nichols said it would be considered a public threat if it were leaking at 350 gallons per hour.
