"Tepco is planning the construction to reduce the groundwater to flow into the reactor building. Tepco will start bowling the mountain side of the reactor building and pump up the groundwater, but I am concerned about one thing...
...I wonder what would happen to the ground if hundreds of tones of water is pumped up everyday. Does it cause ground settlement ?
They are going to do bowling at more than ten locations seemingly. I’m not familiar to Geology or civil engineering, so I’d like to know if someone knows it well."

Both links do not say the ground is settling. One says a worker fears it will and the other link has nothing about ground settling in it. I am at a loss to figure out exactly what this thread is about. I don't mean to be critical OP, but this thread is somewhat misleading.
