Japan plans to dump 1.09 million tons of Fukushima's radioactive water into the Pacific Ocean

Japan plans to dump 1.09 million tons of Fukushima's radioactive water into the Pacific Ocean | 16 Oct 2018 | Water that the Japanese government is planning to release into the Pacific Ocean from the crippled Fukushima Dai-Ichi nuclear plant contains radioactive material well above legally permitted levels, according to the plant's operator and documents seen by The Telegraph...Its plan to release the approximately 1.09 million tons of water currently stored in 900 tanks into the Pacific has triggered a fierce backlash from local residents and environmental organisations, as well as groups in South Korea and Taiwan fearful that radioactivity from the second-worst nuclear disaster in history might wash up on their shores. Tokyo Electric Power Co., (Tepco) which runs the plant, has until recently claimed that the only significant contaminant in the water is safe levels [?] of tritium, which can be found in small amounts in drinking water, but is dangerous in large amounts...Documents provided to The Telegraph by a source in the Japanese government suggest, however, that the ALPS [Advanced Liquid Processing System (ALPS) operated by the nuclear arm of Hitachi Ltd.] has consistently failed to eliminate a cocktail of other radioactive elements, including iodine, ruthenium, rhodium, antimony, tellurium, cobalt and strontium.

Officials visited a total of 1,018 such companies with facilities in eight prefectures in eastern and northeastern Japan, interviewing technical interns there to confirm the situation, after the issue came to light in March.
