Dale Klein, Chairman of the Nuclear Reform Monitoring Committee, told TEPCO president "You don't know what you're doing, and you don't have a plan." TEPCO's president Naomi Hirose's response was, "I apologize for not living up to your expectations."
TEPCO, the company that runs the Fukushima nuclear plant, plans to release all the contaminated water into the Pacific Ocean after filtering out radioactive particles. Due to the large amount of contaminated water, it may be necessary to release unfiltered contaminated water as well.
A whistleblower, a member of the emergency team that built the tanks, revealed to Kyodo news that they were built hastily with little concern for quality. "Huge tanks of water sitting on uneven ground in an active seismic zone is trouble."
