Final disposal field can be chosen from everywhere in Japan
Hosono, minister of environment attended at the town councilor of Naraha machi Fukushima to request them to accept interim storage facility, on 4/7/2012.
At the same time, Hosono stated final disposal site must be chosen from everywhere in Japan to emphasize that they are going to choose a place for final disposal site from outside of Fukushima.
Hosono explains that soil and debris from decontamination should be distributed in 3 different interim storage facilities, in Futaba, Okuma, and Naraha otherwise it causes significant trafic jam to take in and it may affect reactor decommissioning.
In March, Japanese government requested these 3 towns to have interim storage facility but town councilor of Naraha voted for the opinion to be against accepting interim storage facility.
This website updates the latest news about the Fukushima nuclear plant and also archives the past news from 2011. Because it's always updated and added live, articles, categories and the tags are not necessarily fitted in the latest format.
I am the writer of this website. About page remains in 2014. This is because my memory about 311 was clearer than now, 2023, and I think it can have a historical value. Now I'm living in Romania with 3 cats as an independent data scientist.
Actually, nothing has progressed in the plant since 2011. We still don't even know what is going on inside. They must keep cooling the crippled reactors by water, but additionally groundwater keeps flowing into the reactor buildings from the broken parts. This is why highly contaminated water is always produced more than it can circulate. Tepco is planning to officially discharge this water to the Pacific but Tritium is still remaining in it. They dilute this with seawater so that it is legally safe, but scientifically the same amount of radioactive tritium is contained. They say it is safe to discharge, but none of them have drunk it.
