Japan’s Fukushima Nuclear Plant Springs New Leak

One hundred metric tons of highly contaminated water leaked out of a tank at Japan’s Fukushima nuclear power plant, its operator, Tokyo Electric Power Company, said on Thursday.

This has been the worst incident since last August, when a series of radioactive leaks happened. But unlike in those leaks, “water is unlikely to have reached the ocean as there is no drainage in that tank area,” Masayuki Ono, a spokesman for the utility, also known as Tepco, said. The water that did reach the ocean from the earlier leaks was not considered a widespread threat as it becomes diluted by the vastness of the Pacific Ocean.
