TEPCO set to release radioactive tritium from Fukushima nuclear plant into Pacific Ocean

TEPCO set to release radioactive tritium from Fukushima nuclear plant into Pacific Ocean | 14 July 2017 | Local residents and environmental groups have condemned a[n insane] plan by Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) to release radioactive tritium from the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant into the Pacific Ocean...The tritium is building up in water that has been used to cool three reactors that suffered fuel melt-downs after cooling equipment was destroyed in March 2011. Around 770,000 tons of highly radioactive water is being stored in 580 tanks at the site. Fishermen who operate in waters off the plant say any release of radioactive material will devastate an industry that is still struggling to recover from the initial nuclear disaster.
