AND NOW: TEPCO Wants To Store Radioactive Water In Aquifer

Tepco considers using aquifer in great deep for contaminated water storage (Fukushima Diary, June 3, 2013):

On 5/30/2013, the committee of experts suggested Tepco an idea of using the aquifer of great deep for increasing contaminated water storage.

400 tones of ground water flows into the plant on the daily basis. Having contaminated water continuously increasing, Tepco is forced to find a new water storage.

The committee of experts suggested to use aquifer of great deep or build a storage facility in great deep, so the radiation from the retained water doesn’t reach above the ground. They emphasized the importance of investigating the proper geologic stratum and the potential construction period.
