TEPCO to discuss radioactive water with local govt



The operator of the damaged Fukushima nuclear plant plans to consult local communities on how to deal with radioactive water stored at the site.

Tokyo Electric Power Company's Chief Decommissioning Officer, Naohiro Masuda, revealed this when he spoke to NHK on Monday.

He said the company will begin consulting local communities next month on how to deal with the contaminated water. He added that government experts are talking about several disposal methods, such as diluting and discharging the contaminated water into the sea.

About 500 tons of contaminated water is generated daily at the plant.
Purification equipment removes radioactive substances from the water except for tritium. About 600,000 tons of water containing tritium is being kept in tanks on the premises of the plant.
