Last Of Fukushima Daiichi Steel Wall Closed

sea_wall_closed_sept_2015The last portion of the steel piling wall installed in the sea front of Fukushima Daiichi has been closed. On September 24th the last section was installed. This portion of the wall had been left open near unit 4’s intakes to allow groundwater and rain runoff to escape into the port to avoid flooding the areas around the reactors.

With the land side section of the frozen wall operational, TEPCO finally completed this section of steel wall. How this will impact water flows, leakage and contamination levels will be better understood over time.
