According to latest news, more than 11.5 million litres of radioactive water from the impaired Fukushima atomic energy plant in to the Ocean, as Japan started to begin process of throwing it.

The water, that is estimated to be one hundred times more radioactive than the legalised limit, is being released to generate space for even more heavily polluted water that has accumulated around the plant.

“We all have no choice but to discharge water tainted with radioactive components into the ocean as a safety measure,” said Yukio Edano, Japan’s chief cabinet secretary. The water getting poured to the ocean includes ten?million litres that was sprayed across the plant to halt 4 of an 6 atomic reactors from getting too hot.

A further 1,500, 000 litres of water has been diverted out from pit area underneath two additional reactors, which technical engineers say is blocking use of the cooling systems.

Engineers are looking at building brand new storage tanks along with a pond. They are also likely to make a large silk drape in the ocean near the plant in order to contain contamination, the latest in a string of significantly eager procedures.

Powdered bath salts have been applied to convert water a milky white to help find the cause of radioactive water which had leaked into the soil. Previously, sawdust and papers were blended with polymers and cement, in a vain try to close off the cracks from anywhere water had been dripping
