And of course it says it's no big deal.

The levels of contamination :

Officials stressed that the radioactive ash collected in late June and early July, at concentrations of up to 70,800 becquerels per kilogramme

And the government limit :

The level is far higher than the government's 8,000-becquerel per kilogramme limit

And where is this radiation coming from?

Authorities suspect the caesium may be from garden waste, such as tree branches and grass cuttings, that has been burnt in the facility. Kashiwa city official Kiyoshi Nakamura said: "Some people are believed to have cut plants and mown their lawns because of fear of radioactive contamination, and that waste was apparently brought to the plant."

They say it's all safe... but guess what, that waste comes from somewhere... it comes from AROUND TOKYO... there's still this level of radiation in the soil... no way that all of it was cleaned up and sent to incinerators...

And it's now a problem of storage...

However, another city official, Masaki Orihara, warned that "we may run out of space to store the ash in about 55 days. There may be no other way but to end up suspending incinerators in the worst case."
