CONTAMINATED FUKUSHIMA WATER STORAGE TANKS "CLOSE TO CAPACITY", TEPCO ADMITS | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


CONTAMINATED FUKUSHIMA WATER STORAGE TANKS "CLOSE TO CAPACITY", TEPCO ADMITS

The Tokyo Electric Power Company is running out of container space to store water contaminated by tritium outside the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant, and it's also running out of room for building more tanks, according to Yomiuri Shimbum , a Japanese newspaper, which is creating an intractable problem for the utility, which has been tasked with supervising the cleanup of Fukushima.

The Japanese government has been desperately trying to accelerate the cleanup ahead of the upcoming 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo - and it's a miracle it hasn't run into this issue sooner. TEPCO is still struggling with how to dispose of the tritium-tainted water. Options discussed have included dumping it into the ocean, but that proposal has angered local fishing communities.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That the executives from TEPCO haven't been run out of town by a furious Japanese public, and completely thrown out of their jobs, because of the rank incompetence which generated this disaster in the first place, is an absolute mystery to me.
