TEPCO resumes treatment of contaminated water
Tokyo Electric Power Company, or TEPCO, says treatment of contaminated water resumed at the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant on Tuesday afternoon.
TEPCO instructed the plant's workers to evacuate to higher ground when a tsunami warning was issued after a strong earthquake off Fukushima Prefecture on Tuesday morning.
The workers were engaged in operations for treating contaminated water, building storage tanks and decontaminating reactor buildings.
TEPCO officials said the plant's safety was confirmed after the tsunami warning was lifted. They said the plant's facilities were not damaged, and that contaminated water did not leak.
