Japan to build undersea tunnel to release wastewater from Fukushima nuclear power plant Updated: 2021-08-25 15:49:10 KST

Japan has reportedly decided to discharge radioactive water from the Fukushima nuclear power plant into the sea just one kilometer off the coast through an undersea tunnel.
Multiple Japanese media outlets report that TEPCO, the plant's operator, will announce their decision as soon as Wednesday to start discharging the contaminated water in spring 2023.
TEPCO reportedly aims to submit the plan to Japan's Nuclear Regulation Authority as early as next month and will soon start preparing to lay pipes on the sea floor.
The plant has been storing some 1 million tons of the water built up since 2011, when a massive earthquake and tsunami destroyed its reactors, contaminating its cooling water.
