Close to 2,000 liters of slightly radioactive water have leaked in the Czech Nuclear Power Plant at Temelin, near the border with Austria.

The incident took place Monday evening local electricity company CEZ announced.

The leak was caused by a turn-cock that someone forgot to close and was only restricted to the containment, plant officials explained. They added that the accident did not endanger the life of the workers and that the water was collected in a reservoir and never left the restricted area.

Many Austrians claim that the Russian-model plant is not safe and this incident may further increase pressure on the Czech authorities.
