  • 40+ years to clean it up
  • 720 tons of water gets pumped through every day to avoid a meltdown
  • 1,000 storage tanks already built, more will continue to be built to store the radioactive water used to avoid a meltdown.
  • 2,000 tons of water released into the ocean every week. It’s supposedly processed to remove most radioactive particles. Who knows…
  • Fishing grounds remain closed.

What will they do with thousands of storage tanks? Bury them? The Hanford facility in Southwest Washington State did that with tanks long ago. Now they are leaking, and there is no plan.
