TEPCO: Fukushima Water is STILL Radioactive – 920,000 Tons Contaminated
Tokyo Electric Power says treatments hasn't removed all of its radiation
Water from the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant is still contaminated despite years from treatment to treat the radioactive elements.
Tokyo Electric Power (TEPCO) was forced to admit that their ongoing treatment of the contaminated water had not removed all of its radiation, and still has poisonous iodine, cesium, and strontium present.
Massive quantities of water have been continued to be stored in containers following the Fukushima disaster.
The disaster occurred after a massive tsunami that caused waves that destroyed the plant’s reactors.
According to the DS: Despite a considerable process to purify the water, a TEPCO report has unveiled it is still severely radioactive.
It states that most of the 920,000 tons of water cannot be discharged back into the environment and “urgent work” must be done to make the fluid safe.
Telco general manager Junichi Matsumo said: “We had to prioritize processing large amounts of water as quickly as possible to reduce the overall risk.”
Even more shockingly, some of the water is so dangerous experts think it has 20,000 times the allowed limit of radioactive particles for release.
There has been growing outrage in Japan at how authorities are dealing with Fukushima years after the meltdown.
Residents have even accused the Government of deceiving people about whether it is safe to live in Fukushima and whether food taken from the ocean is safe to eat.
In July, it was reported that Californian wine contained traces of radiation.
Researchers at the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) reported samples of red and rosé grown on the US west coast contained quantities of Caesium-137.
It is thought this was created by radiation traces being carried in clouds to the United States, which then infiltrated the water system through the rain.
