The operator of the leaking Fukushima nuclear plant said Tuesday that it dumped more than 1,000 tons of polluted water into the sea after a typhoon raked the facility.
Typhoon Man-yi smashed into Japan on Monday, bringing with it heavy rain that caused flooding in some parts of the country, including the ancient city of Kyoto.
The rain also lashed near the broken plant run by Tokyo Electric Power (TEPCO), swamping enclosure walls around clusters of water tanks containing toxic water that was used to cool broken reactors.
Some of the tanks were earlier found to be leaking contaminated water.

TEPCO needs to come right out and say "we're going to continue to dump water into the ocean because that's all we can do" as opposed to the claim that they aren't doing it on purpose.... it's just ground water leaking into the ocean and they can't stop it. why don't they just say,,,,, "hey, it's all really no big deal. this won't hurt the ocean or the fish. this won't hurt the drinking water or the soil. relax folks".
