Highly radioactive water has leaked from a reactor turbine building at a stricken nuclear plant in Japan, the operator said Monday, adding to fears the liquid is seeping into the environment.
The water, found in an underground tunnel linked to the number two reactor at the Fukushima plant, showed a radiation reading of more than 1,000 millisieverts per hour, a Tokyo Electric Power official told reporters.
There is estimated to be several thousand cubic metres of water inside the tunnel.
“We need to check if the water could flow directly into the sea,” he said.
Each reactor turbine building is connected to a maintenance tunnel large enough for workers to walk through.
