Japan will ‘throw’ Fukushima water into the sea [Video]



The Japanese government has decided to release radioactive water from the destroyed Fukushima nuclear plant at sea.

This is according to reports from the Kyodo news agency and other media on Friday (October 16).

They said a formal announcement is expected to be made later this month.

The Fukushima nuclear power plant was devastated by an earthquake and tsunami nine years ago.

Since then, Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings has collected more than a million tons of contaminated water.

Japanese Prime Minister Katsunobu Kato said on Friday (October 1

6) that no decision had been made, but that the government intended to do so quickly.

He did not provide any additional details, including a timeframe.

Accumulation of contaminated water in Fukushima has become a sticky cleaning area, possibly lasting decades.

The delayed Olympic Games will be held in Tokyo next summer, with some events less than 40 miles from the plant.
