Newest TEPCO Tank Leak Due to Tilted Tank

tepcoleaningtankNHK is reporting that TEPCO has admitted the reason the latest tank leak happened was contributed to by the tank being tilted at an angle. The tank contains water with 200,000 bq/kg of beta radiation. The angle the tank is currently sitting at caused water to spill out a gap at the top of the bolt together tank. TEPCO said they are working to deal with the problem with the bolt together tanks. So far neither TEPCO or the government has announced exactly what will be done to solve this problem.
