The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry Fukushima Chernobyl Mayak Three Mile Island Atomic Testing Radiation Isotope

Leakage of coolant water from ice wall around crippled Fukushima nuclear power station

The operator of Japan’s crippled Fukushima nuclear power plant said this
month that two storage tanks had leaked about four tonnes of coolant
solution used to create an ice wall that prevented groundwater from seeping
in. The operator, Tokyo Electric Power Co Holdings (9501.T) (Tepco), said
the leak had no impact on the wall or the environment, however. But the
incident highlights its struggle to clean up the plant nearly 11 years
after a massive earthquake and tsunami set off meltdowns in the worst
nuclear disaster since Chernobyl in 1986.
