So where does this contaminated water go when they remove it from the reactor

MSM is reporting, live, right now, that the reports out of Japan about the water being 10 million times above previous levels, was wrong. In fact, levels are only 4 times greater than previous radiation levels.
Can't post a link, because it was just on MSM News in the past 3 minutes.
This is what happens to people who follow twitter as a news source before any other source. This thread is now irrelevant.edit on 3/27/2011 by MadDogtheHunter because: (no reason given)

The company pumped fresh water into No. 1, No. 2, and No. 3 reactors, Japan’s Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency said. The external power supply has been restored for all six reactors as of March 22, according to Tokyo Electric Power.
For how can the power be up when they pulled the workers out?? and be able to work in that high of a RAD?? like working in a microwave oven

The operators of a stricken Japanese nuclear plant have apologised for a "mistake" in reporting a radiation spike 10 million times above normal.
Tokyo Electric Power Company, which has previously been criticised by officials for its handling of the crisis at the plant, said it got the readings wrong.
Despite the mistake, the radiation spike at reactor 2 was still very high and enough to evacuate workers.
The BBC's Mark Worthington reports.
The nuclear industry is a snake-oil culture of habitual misrepresentation, pervasive wishful thinking, deep denial, and occasional outright deception.
When nuclear reactors blow, the first thing that melts down is the truth.
