Tepco says radioactive water has stopped leaking from Fukushima nuclear plant into the Pacific Ocean

Tokyo Electric Power Co, operator of Japan's crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear complex, said that it had stopped leaks of contaminated water with high levels of radiation into the ocean. -- PHOTO: REUTERS TOKYO - RADIOACTIVE water stopped leaking into the Pacific Ocean from Japan's crippled Fukushima nuclear plant on Wednesday, Jiji Press reported, citing the operator Tokyo Electric Power Co (Tepco). Tepco had on Tuesday injected sodium silicate, a chemical agent known as 'water glass', to solidify soil near a cracked pit, from where large volumes of highly radioactive water had been seeping through and running into the sea. Run-off from the plant has measured more than 1,000 millisieverts and is believed to be the source of radioactive iodine-131 readings in ocean waters more than 4,000 times the legal limit. The pit, which has a 20cm crack in its wall, is linked to the ...
