Japan says TEPCO will dump more than 1 million tonnes of radioactive water from Fukushima nuclear plant into Pacific Ocean

Breaking: Japan says TEPCO will dump more than 1 million tons of radioactive water from Fukushima nuclear plant into Pacific Ocean | 10 Sept 2019 | Japan's environment minister announced Tuesday that the country will have to dump radioactive water from the Fukushima power plant into the ocean because it is running out of space, Reuters reported. According to Reuters, Tokyo Electric, or Tepco, has collected more than 1 million tonnes of contaminated water from the cooling pipes used to keep fuel cores from melting since the plant was crippled by an earthquake and tsunami in 2011. "The only option will be to drain it into the sea and dilute it," the minister, Yoshiaki Harada, told a news briefing in Tokyo...The government is awaiting a report from an expert panel before making a final decision on how to dispose of the radioactive water.
