Toxic water leaks from tank

May 2, 2015

Radioactive water leaks from storage tank at Fukushima




A tiny amount of radioactive water has leaked from a storage tank at the crippled Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant.

Tokyo Electric Power Co., the operator of the plant, said May 1 that about 40 milliliters of water was found under a storage tank holding radiation-contaminated water. The water is believed to have leaked from the tank.

Sandbags were placed around the tank to prevent water from spreading to other areas.

A TEPCO official said a worker came across the wet patch measuring 20 centimeters square at 9:30 a.m. on May 1.

Seventy millisieverts per hour of beta ray-emitting radioactivity were detected on the surface where the water had leaked.
