Tepco plans to increase water injection of reactor 3

Tepco is going to increase the amount of water to inject to reactor3.

They assume reactors will be heated as it gets warmer from winter to summer.

On 5/25/2012, Tepco announced that they are going to increase water amount to inject to reactor 3, but they will decrease the water amount to reactor 1 and 2 to keep the total water amount the same otherwise it would cause the water purifying system over-capacity.

They did not explain why they assume only reactor 3 may be heated in the same condition as other 2 reactors.
