Fukushima plant radioactive water could be stored in tanks long term - gov't source

Fukushima plant radioactive water could be stored in tanks long term - gov't source | 13 May 2019 | The Japanese administration is considering keeping the enormous and still growing volume of radioactively contaminated water at the disaster-stricken Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant in storage tanks for the long term, a source close to the government has told the Mainichi Shimbun. Previously, five options to deal with the contaminated water were being compared: releasing it into the ocean; piping it into a deep stratum of the Earth's crust; releasing it into the atmosphere as steam; encasing it in cement and burying it; and using electrolysis to hydrogenate tritium...in the water before releasing it into the air [!]. However, strontium 90 -- a radioactive element that can accumulate in the bones -- was discovered in treated water in government maximum-busting concentrations just before August 2018 public hearings on the contaminated water problem.
