Japan: Radioactive Material Leaks into Sea

Radiation has been detected in seawater around the Southern discharge canal of Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station which was damaged by the 2011 Tohoku-Taiheiyou-Oki Ocean Earthquake.

TEPCO has undertaken a full sampling survey of the area surrounding Fukushima Daiich Nuclear Power Station since problems with the cooling systems at the plant led to a series of explosion and concerns over temperature and pressure at the plant.

TEPCO has informed the Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency (NISA) and Fukushima prefecture of the sample results. Further testing will take place as well as continued blackouts as staff at the power station battle to contain failures and bring the plant back on line.
