ShareThisFukushima nuclear plant suspected to be leaking highly radioactive water into Pacific Ocean 11 Jul 2013 Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant is suspected to be leaking highly radioactive water into the ground, contaminating the Pacific Ocean, the Nuclear Regulation Authority (NRA) said. NRA Chairman Shunichi Tanaka said that the recent studies carried out on groundwater samples at the plant have detected high levels of cesium, tritium and other radioactive contamination. The Japan Times reports that Tokyo Electric Power Co. (Tepco) has claimed that a pit seeping radioactive water after the nuclear crisis erupted at the plant in April 2011 is the source of contamination.
