Pumps Fail Causing Unknown Amount Of Highly Radioactive Fukushima Water To Spill Into Ocean

Recommended Posts

Guest

A survey conducted last week at Fukushima No. 1 found the radiation levels are so high at the station, exposure to it would kill a human being within an hour.

The Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) reported that more highly radioactive water spilled into the ocean at the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant on Tuesday due to an electricity outage, which shut down all the facility’s water pumps. TEPCO could not confirm how much water escaped.

The Japan Times reports that the company had begun transferring water from a drainage channel at the plant to a nearby artificial bay last Friday using eight pumps. A February test determined that water from the channel.
