Japan allowed to drain water from the emergency nuclear power plant "Fukushima-1" into the ocean

This decision was made by the Japanese government at a meeting of the heads of interested ministries and departments in

led by Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga. The gradual release of water is expected to take decades.

These reservoirs now store about 1.3 million tons of radioactive water - enough to fill 500 sports swimming pools.

It is planned to prepare and check additional equipment, as well as carry out the necessary work.

The accumulated water now contains isotopestritium, which is technically impossible to extract from there. In Japan, they claim that when it is dumped into the ocean, the concentration of this substance will meet the WHO standard for drinking water.

Therefore, when water from a nuclear power plant is discharged into the ocean, the level of radioactivity will be up to 0.62 microsieverts in seawater and 1.3 microsieverts in the atmosphere.
