Japan’s Nuclear Regulation Authority has informed the International Atomic Energy Agency that it has rated a leak of radioactive water at Tokyo Electric Power Company’s (TEPCO) Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station at level 3 on the International Nuclear and Radiological Event Scale (INES). Previously, TEPCO rated the 300-ton leak of contaminated water at level 1, or an “anomaly.” The plant’s initial 2011 meltdown in three of its reactors was labeled a level 7 “major accident.”
