Japanese regulators agree to release Fukushima water into the sea
TOKYO (Reuters) – The Japanese government said on Friday that nuclear regulators had approved a plan to discharge into ocean waters from the wrecked Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant.
The water, which was used to cool reactors in the wake of the 2011 nuclear disaster, is stored in huge tanks at the plant, and amounted to more than 1.3 million tons by July.
The State Department said in a statement that regulators have deemed it safe to release the water, which will still contain traces of tritium after treatment.

It added that operator Tokyo Power Electric (9501.T) will face additional inspections by regulators.
Tepco plans to filter the polluted water to remove harmful isotopes apart from tritium, which is difficult to remove. It is then diluted and released to free up factory space and allow shutdown to continue.
The plan met stiff resistance from the fishermen’s guilds in the area who feared its impact on their livelihoods. China, South Korea and Taiwan also expressed concern.
