On 8/18/2012, the community pool in Fukushima city was re-opened after 2 years blank.
Because a sewage plant is near the pool, they measure the radiation level of poolside as a reference for the people. It was 0.79 μSv/h at 50cm above from the floor.
The children’s pool lost the coating because of the high pressure washers for decontamination. They are to re-open it in 2013.
Fukushima citizen commented to the interviewer, “I’m full of gratitude to be allowed to swim.”
The pool is open until 9/2/2012.
