TEPCO's N-plant delays cause for worry

TEPCO's N-plant delays cause for worry

  Tokyo Electric Power Co. has so far been unable to locate the source of spreading contaminated groundwater at its Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant, fueling concerns the radioactive contamination may spread into wider areas, even out of the plant’s port facilities.
As the configuration of underground tunnels of power cables and seawater pipes where the contaminated water is accumulating is complicated, implementing measures such as draining the water, will take a lot of time.
At a time when the leakage of radioactive water into the Pacific Ocean has come to the fore, TEPCO’s delay in taking necessary action could affect the whole process of decommissioning the crippled reactors at the plant.
