The Weather Channel: Fukushima Power Plant Dilemma: What to Do With More Than 1 Million Tons of Radioactive Water
https://weather.com/news/news/2018-04-30...rage-tanks

Excerpt:

One of the issues still facing the plant’s water is that the filters can’t catch tritium, which is a radioactive isotope found in hydrogen.

“It’s one thing to separate cesium from water, but how do you separate water from water?” John Raymont, founder of Kurion Inc., the company that provided the facility’s first filtering system, asked Wired.com.

News of contaminated water seeping into the Pacific understandably sparked concerns. However, a study conducted on the radiation concentration in the water determined it's not impacting the local fishing industry, the Japan Times reports.  
Former U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission head Dale Klein told Wired.com that the levels of tritium in the water are low enough that it could be safely released into the sea.
 
“They should dilute and dispose of it,” he added. “It would be better to have a controlled release than an accidental one.”

They can remove the tritium but it was deemed too expensive for Japan to pursue. Dumping is just the cheaper solution.

TEPCO shareholders and all Japanese ought rebel - the fisheries, food chain, and human health are at such great risk due to internal exposure which the "authorities" always ignore or downplay. Seafood holds such a prominent place in their diet. They need to protest more and louder.
