Decontaminating Highly Radioactive Areas to Put on Hold Updated: 2012-01-27 12:00:00 KST

Decontaminating Highly Radioactive Areas to Put on Hold
Still reeling from last year's nuclear disaster, Japan says it will give up decontaminating areas with radiation readings of over 50 millisieverts per year near the wrecked Fukushima nuclear power plant for now.
Japan's environment ministry released its roadmap for cleaning up radiation-contaminated areas on Thursday.
The plan calls for working on areas with radiation levels below 50 millisieverts and lowering the readings to 20 millisieverts by March 2014 to bring back residents to the area.
It appears that the work of decontaminating highly radioactive areas will be put on hold because the current technology is insufficient to significantly reduce the radiation levels.
