Ten years ago, a tsunami destroyed the Fukushima nuclear plant. Now, the million tonnes of water used to cool nuclear fuel are set to be released back into the ocean.
Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga announced on April 13 that the treated radioactive water, which is enough to fill 500 Olympic-sized swimming pools and has been stored in tanks on-site since 2011, will be further filtered to meet international standards before being released into the ocean, the BBC reports. The process will also only start two years from now, and is expected to last decades. Nonetheless, the local fishing industry and other countries are worried about the potential risks, and naturally tourism in the area will never survive.
