970,000 m3 current capacity of ALPS treated waste water, room for only 1.37M m3 total capacity.  

They don't say leak it, it's called controlled discharge.  Solid waste management includes volume reduction as in burn it, releasing those bothersome radionuclides again.  Solid waste threatens to overwhelm the site, neighbors fear to be the dump.  Careful of the public opinion.

- The operation of countermeasures such as the subdrain repair and frozen soil wall to substantially reduce the production of contaminated water from approximately 490 m3/day average in FY2015 to approximately 200 m3/day average in first half of FY2018. As of October 2018, about 1,100,000 m3 of treated water is stored on-site, vs. 600,000
