Original upload by MissingSky101 called Fukushima News 6/2/14: Fuku Ice Wall Experiment Begins;Protests & Nuke Plant Restart Japan is Sinking MORE & Expected to sink MORE Fukushima update 12/17/12 http://youtu.be/FqaJYWyQQcE Anonymous Official: Part of ground to sink beneath Fukushima reactors from ice wall being built — Gov't: Biggest fear is ground sinkage and buildings being destabilized — Tepco: It will sink up to 16mm, but should be ok — Scientist: "People have lost confidence in Tepco" http://tinyurl.com/lyd8ar2 Senior Scientist: Fukushima giant 'ice wall' to make crisis worse — Radioactive release into ocean from saltwater intrusion — Side effects 'not good at all' (AUDIO) http://tinyurl.com/nq7fbma Work on frozen wall begins at Fukushima Daiichi Workers have started building part of an underground frozen soil wall that will eventually surround the reactor and turbine buildings at the damaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. The wall is intended to prevent groundwater from nearby hillsides from flowing into the plant and mixing with highly radioactive materials there. The government and the plant's operator, Tokyo Electric Power Company, plan to freeze the soil in a 1.5 kilometer zone at a depth of about 30 meters around the facilities of reactors No.1 through 4. The Nuclear Regulation Authority has yet to authorize the entire construction plan as studies on some technical issues are still underway. But with its partial approval, construction started from the hillside behind the No.1 facility on Monday afternoon. Workers began digging a hole for coolant pipes to be laid and setting up equipment needed to freeze the soil. The plan is to start freezing the soil around next March, and to complete the wall about 1 month later. NHK's reporters say the frozen soil wall is expected to keep groundwater from being contaminated. But, they point out that the wall will also change the flow of groundwater into the plant, and this might cause radioactive water in the buildings' basements to seep out. The utility is being urged to work out measures to prevent this from happening. Jun. 2, 2014 Evacuated town reopens its former office A town in the evacuation zone near the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant has re-opened its town hall to lay the groundwork for residents to return home. Officials of Naraha Town began working at the hall on Monday, more than three years after the nuclear accident first erupted. Mayor Yukiei Matsumoto told the municipal workers that the re-opening of the office is just a transit point, and he urged them to work hard so the town would become a model for the area's reconstruction. Matsumoto also said the town would finally be able to function properly again and that officials would do their utmost to address a large number of issues. Jun. 2, 2014 Rally held against restarting Sendai nuclear plant A rally has been held in central Tokyo to oppose the restart of a nuclear power plant in southern Japan. The Sendai plant in Kagoshima Prefecture could be the first to return online under stricter safety standards. Hundreds of people gathered in front of the Diet on Sunday carrying placards and banners. Senior citizens and families also joined the demonstration. The Nuclear Regulation Authority is in the final phase of safety screenings for the plant. All of Japan's reactors have to meet the stricter standards introduced last year in response to the 2011 Fukushima accident. Jun. 1, 2014 Fukushima residents wary of waste facilities Residents of 2 towns in Fukushima Prefecture have expressed concern over a government plan to build intermediate facilities for radioactive soil and waste in their towns. 540 people from the towns of Futaba and Okuma gathered in the city of Iwaki on Saturday to hear a briefing by officials from the Environment Ministry. The 2 towns are located close to the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant.
