Water leaks from barrier found at Fukushima plant
The operator of the damaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant says officials have found water leaks at 7 locations in a barrier that surrounds tanks holding contaminated water.
Tokyo Electric Power Company officials said they confirmed on Sunday that water had leaked from the barrier near the Number 4 reactor. It’s one of 30 barriers in the compound.
The officials said the amount of the leak was about 19.2 tons, which they believe seeped into the ground.
They detected 23 becquerels per liter of radioactive strontium 90 in water still inside the barrier.

Decontamination at over 50% outside Fukushima
Officials at Japan’s Environment Ministry say more than 50 percent of homes outside Fukushima Prefecture have undergone government-funded decontamination following the March 2011 nuclear accident.
The officials say the work was done on nearly 80,000 homes at the end of last year.
The figure represents 59 percent of homes marked for decontamination in 58 municipalities.
The number is more than 13,000 higher from the previous survey 4 months earlier. The rate has exceeded 50 percent for the first time. The rise is attributed to increased clean-up efforts.
Officials say the increase was partly because more homes were found not to have needed decontamination after radiation monitoring was conducted.
