2 of the long cracks were found on the base concrete of the tank areas.

Those cracks are 12m and 8m long, found in 2 tank areas. Those tank areas are next to each other.

 

The concrete base is to stop leaked contaminated water leak to the ground. Tepco removed the soil around the tank areas for the possible past leakage of contaminated water.

There is a possibility that land subsidence caused the long cracks, but Tepco didn’t mention the possibility and only announced they will cover the concrete base with urethane coating.
