TEPCO to prepare for radioactive water leaks
The operator of the damaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant has decided to dig observation wells to prepare for the possibility of highly radioactive water seeping into groundwater.
Tokyo Electric Power Company has come under criticism after more than 100 tons of water containing record-high levels of radioactive substances overflowed from a storage tank last month.
The utility says the leakage occurred when valves that should have been closed were left open, allowing tainted water to enter the tank that overflowed.
But company officials have yet to pinpoint the exact reasons for the oversight.
