    Japan’s government has decided to release contaminated water from the destroyed Fukushima nuclear plant into the nearby Pacific Ocean. A formal announcement about the move was expected in late October, according to reports on October 16, 2020, from Kyodo News agency and other media. The Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant was crippled by a tsunami triggered by an earthquake in 2011. Since then, more than 1 million tonnes of water used to cool the damaged core of the power station has been stored in huge tanks which will reach capacity by 2022.
