Ocean Dumping: Truthout
#1
Fukushima Plant Is Releasing 770,000 Tons of Radioactive Water Into the Pacific Ocean http://www.truth-out.org/news/item/41564...ific-ocean

Great to see an article by Dahr Jamail on TEPCO's proposed dumping of radioactive waste into the Pacific Ocean. But, the headline is misleading. I don't see in the article any mention of the fact that TEPCO continues to "drain" (as they call it) thousands of tons of radioactive water into the ocean on a regular basis. There is this one mention of the ongoing drainage:

"He also shed light on how this massive dumping of radioactive tritium water is not likely to be the last time this occurs. Chareyron said that TEPCO still must pump out on a daily basis massive amounts of heavily contaminated water that is used to cool the reactor cores, and this water is also already contaminating the water table with radiation." [emphasis added].

That still doesn't hit the mark.

Today's report in the TEPCO Daily cites: drain to port 936m3 & drain more (to port), drain to ocean 1890m3.

I sent a note to Truthout asking of Dahr could do a follow up on the ongoing dumping.
