TEPCO admits Fukushima-1 reactors leak radioactive water to Pacific Ocean
2013 07 23
The operator of Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, TEPCO, has admitted for the first time since March 2011 that crippled reactors continue to leak highly contaminated radioactive waters into the Pacific Ocean.
TEPCO had previously denied suspicions that contaminated water had reached the sea, despite the fact that levels of potentially cancer-causing radioactive substances present in ground and seawater samples at the plant had soared.
"But now we believe that contaminated water has flown out to the sea," TEPCO spokesman Masayuki Ono said at a Monday news conference.
According to Ono, officials suspect that radioactive water leaked from the wrecked reactors, likely seeping into the underground water system before reaching the sea.
Earlier this month, TEPCO acknowledged that levels of radioactive cesium-134 in a well at the nuclear power plant jumped by 90 times in just three days. The company said the levels were at their highest point since the March 2011 disaster.
However, the company’s spokesman insisted on Monday that the radioactive water’s impact on the ocean would be limited.
