Japan ‘to dump’ Fukushima water into the sea [Video]



The Japanese government has decided to release radioactive water from the destroyed nuclear power plant in Fukushima into the sea.

That is according to reports from the Kyodo news agency and other media on Friday (October 16).

They say a formal announcement is expected to be sent later this month.

The Fukushima nuclear power plant was paralyzed by an earthquake and tsunami nine years ago.

Since then, Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings has collected more than one million tons of contaminated water.

Japan’s General Secretary Katsunobu Kato said on Friday (October 1

6) that no decision has been made, but the government intends to take a quick one.

He did not provide further details, including a time frame.

The build-up of polluted water at Fukushima has been a fixed point in the cleanup, which is likely to last for decades.

The delayed Olympic Games will be held in Tokyo next summer with some events less than 40 miles from the facility.
