Japanese officials allowed owners of the damaged Fukushima nuclear power plant to empty tanks holding 10,000 tons of slightly radioactive water into the ocean ~ in order to make room to pump highly contaminated water out of reactor No. 2.
Radioactive water leaks into the sea near the No. 2 reactor of Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in northeastern Japan, April 2. Workers labored through the weekend to find the source of the leak. Unable to do so, they dumped slightly radioactive water into the ocean in order to free up tank space to pump out highly radioactive water from the suspect area.

While workers on a suicide mission armed only with trash and super glue scramble to do what they can, still the Japanese government maintains there is no risk to public health because the material will “dissipate”.
Fukushima Gov Yuhei Sato expressed anger at the central government’s nuclear safety agency on Sunday for its late release of radioactivity data related to local farm produce, shipments of which have been partly restricted amid the ongoing nuclear crisis.It takes a few days for the results of each test to be released, according to Sato.
