Undersea tunnel nearing completion for contaminated water discharge in Japan… Reactor Damage Controversy



An undersea tunnel in Japan to discharge contaminated water from the Fukushima nuclear power plant into the sea is almost complete.

While preparations for the release of contaminated water are accelerating, public organizations in Japan have expressed concern about damage to the interior of the reactor.

Preparations for the discharge of contaminated water from the Fukushima nuclear power plant in Japan have taken a step forward.

Local Fukushima media said, “Recently, the excavation of the undersea tunnel was completed, internal cleaning and an inspection by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission was completed.”

“The work of filling the tunnel with seawater has started from land and sea,” he reported.

As a procedure for discharging radioactively contaminated water into the sea, all associated construction work is expected to be completed within this month.

Last week, the International Atomic Energy Agency’s investigative team completed a comprehensive verification process, and plans to release the final report soon.

Amidst this, there is a difference of opinion regarding the effects of damage to the reactor containment, drawing attention.

TEPCO said there would be “no major impact” on the damage to the part that supports the reactor’s pressure vessel, which was confirmed by an underwater robot investigation.

It was also predicted that even if the worst possible situation of a hole in the vessel still occurred, the amount of radiation released would be below the standard.

On the other hand, Japan’s Nuclear Regulatory Commission asked for a more detailed response plan, saying, “There is a possibility that other radioactive materials could be released, and a review of the situation where the amount of radiation will increase is also necessary. “
