Japanese daily 300 tons of nuclear waste water is discharged into the ocean. Japan’s Kyodo News said on the 8th, the Japanese Ministry of Economy on the 7th openly admitted that in 2011 the Great East Japan Earthquake that occurred after the nuclear accident in Fukushima Daiichi nuclear long-standing problem of sewage leaks, is expected to flow into the ocean every day more nuclear sewage up to 300 tons, the news triggered Japanese domestic and international public opinion vibration. Japanese public opinion, nuclear waste water leakage problem is not only the Japanese public water and fishing safety, and serious damage to Japan’s international image. Incumbent Liberal Democratic Party will blame the practice of TEPCO and former Democratic Party government not to act.
Kyodo News reported that the Japanese government under the Nuclear Disaster Countermeasures Headquarters groundwater level data such as Tokyo Electric Power Company, made the above estimates. Specific situation may be that the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station Unit 1-4 flowing around about 1,000 tons per day of groundwater, of which about 400 tons, etc. flow reactor building underground. The remaining 600 tons, about 300 tons of groundwater inflow and plant linked trenches after being stranded in one of the high activity of sewage pollution to the sea. However, no clear “Since when sewage began to flow into these waters surrounding the nucleus.” This is the first time the Japanese government publicly acknowledged the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant “manufacturing and nuclear waste water discharge.” “Asahi Shimbun” on the 7th, said University of Tokyo Institute of Technology published a date of the latest survey report shows the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in the waters around 20 kilometers, sea levels of radioactive material in the soil higher than the external waters for at least 5 -10 times, which indeed evidence of the nuclear sewage waters surrounding the formation of pollution.
“Yomiuri Shimbun,” said the sewage on the nuclear issue, facing public pressure inside and outside of the Japanese government is taking “urgent crisis.” 7, the Japanese government has decided in 2014 to increase the annual budget for special funds for the settlement of the nuclear sewage problem, if the budget were approved, it will be the Government of Japan for the first time on such issues into national funds. Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said Wednesday that nuclear contamination of sewage was “a major issue of national relations”, the Japanese government would “take responsibility.” 8, by the middle of the Minister charged in Motegi Min told reporters after a cabinet meeting when asked, said the Japanese government will take “all conceivable ways,” strive “There is no oversight.” The measures being taken include the extraction Fukushima nuclear power plant Unit 2 near the trenches of high radiation sewage plant in Unit 1-4 periphery wall of frozen water, shelter, etc., this measure was originally scheduled to begin this year by the end of August and then, but now “much earlier.”
Kyodo News reported that the Fukushima nuclear sewage problem because once again become a domestic focus, and Tokyo Electric Power Co. nuclear power plant operating side once again become the focus of public censure. Nuclear waste water by producing provinces in the report after the disclosure, in the face of public opinion questioning Tepco technical officials actually said, “do not understand the situation, can not be answered in detail,” there are news that Tepco Although long known sewage spills situation, but “is not public detailed data. ” Minister of charge by the middle of the 8th Motegi Min publicly accused said: “The previous government almost no time to take concrete measures for the supervision of Tepco also insufficient.” However, “Asahi Shimbun” on the 8th that the regime of nuclear non-sewage problem bears the same shirk its responsibility, in order to escape the responsibility of saving the government budget but will clean up Fukushima nuclear power plant “mess” in most of the burden onto the Tokyo Electric Power, “is not on the consequences of the nuclear disaster late leakage sufficient attention.”
Although the Fukushima nuclear accident has occurred more than two years, but the shadow of nuclear radiation contamination are still unable to erase from the minds of the Japanese. According to the “Global Times” reporter observed, Tokyo supermarkets are selling Fukushima and neighboring regions produced fruit, vegetables and rice, although the price relative to other regions lot cheaper, but people are still items in these areas “at arm’s length “, preferring to spend more money to have to buy food away from Fukushima.
