Not sure I knew that there was an Aquifer under the plant, did that info already come to light?

And a chart showing Daini as well.

J&C, no idea about the water wall, unfortunately. The literal meanings of the characters for "particles" in that picture are "grain-child," so it is, unfortunately, a very broad term. When there are things not explicitly said but likely inferred, I promise I will make notes at the bottom to convey as much as possible.
All that being said, Ｆｏｒ this next image, do you have any more context than what I could translate? Only because there's a character that could mean "tearing/severing/breaking" (as in the earth) or "analysis" (as in the document). It changes the meaning of the image considerably and there's really not enough context for me to say definitely what it is, one way or the other.
I'm on a roll... if anyone wants anything else translated. Again, it's not native, but hopefully a bit more informative than Google translator.

Also, disclaimer, Japanese involves both literal and conceptual translation Hope this helps... still more to come between working, sleeping, eating.edit on 26-2-2012 by manicminxx because: (no reason given)
Mount Fuji in Red
A large nuclear power plant near Mount Fuji has begun to melt down; its six reactors explode one by one. The breaches fill the sky with hellish red fumes and send millions of Japanese citizens fleeing in terror towards the ocean. After an unspecified amount of time, two men, a woman, and her two small children are seen alone, left behind on land in broad daylight. Behind them is the sea. The older man, who is dressed in a business suit, explains to the younger man that the rest have drowned themselves in the ocean. He then says that the several colours of the clouds billowing across the now rubbish-strewn, post-apocalyptic landscape signify different radioactive isotopes; according to him, red signifies plutonium-239, a tenth of a microgram of which is enough to cause cancer. He elaborates on how other released isotopes cause leukemia (strontium-90) and birth defects (cesium-137) before wondering at the foolish futility of colour-coding radioactive gases of such lethality.
The woman, hearing these descriptions, recoils in horror before angrily cursing those responsible and the pre-disaster assurances of safety they had given. The suited man then displays contrition, suggesting that he is in part responsible for the disaster. The other man, dressed casually, watches the multicoloured radioactive clouds advance upon them. When he turns back towards the others at the shore, he sees the woman weeping: the suit-clad man has leaped to his death. A cloud of red dust reaches them, causing the mother to shrink back in terror. The remaining man attempts to shield the mother and her children by using his jacket to feebly fan away the now-incessant radioactive billows.
The Weeping Demon
A man finds himself wandering around a misty, bleak mountainous terrain. He meets a strange oni-like man, who is actually a mutated human with one horn. The "demon" explains that there had been a nuclear holocaust which resulted in the loss of nature and animals, enormous dandelions and humans sprouting horns, which cause them so much agony that you can hear them howling during the night, but, according to the demon, they can't die, which makes their agony even worse. This is actually a post-apocalyptic retelling of a classic Buddhist fable of the same name.

Oh boy, then this nugget:
Insight: After disaster, the deadliest part of Japan's nuclear clean-up
"The operator of Japan's crippled Fukushima nuclear plant is preparing to remove 400 tons of highly irradiated spent fuel from a damaged reactor building, a dangerous operation that has never been attempted before on this scale."
