No solution to tainted water at Fukushima plant
[...] Each day about 400 tons of underground water has been flowing into reactor buildings [...] The water becomes contaminated with radioactive materials.
[...] the volume of the water is continuing to rise, increasing radiation levels at the plant. [...]
The company plans to pump underground water to prevent it from flowing into reactor buildings. It will also install steel walls underground to block contaminated water from leaking into the sea. [...]
