Treated Water Portal Site has been Redesigned
Treated Water Portal Site used to Present Information about ALPS Treated Water has been Redesigned.
In order to increase the public’s understanding regarding the discharge of ALPS treated water into the sea as part of the decommissioning work, Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings, Inc. (hereinafter referred to as “TEPCO”) has been disseminating information based on scientific evidence to parties within and outside Japan. We would like to hereby notify you that “Treated Water Portal Site”, a website dedicated to presenting information about ALPS treated water in a visually-stimulating and easy-to-understand manner, has been redesigned and new contents are added.
This website is available not only Japanese, but also English, Chinese (Simplified), Chinese (Traditional), and Korean.
Sea Area Monitoring
With regard to sea area monitoring conducted by TEPCO, the sampling point from which specimens to be measured is taken, past measurement results, and measurement result trends can now be checked at a glance.
TEPCO Shorts ALPS Treated Water
TEPCO Shorts are a series of animated videos approximately one-minute long that answer various questions about ALPS treated water. They provide information on such things as the tritium contained in ALPS treated water.
Webcast of Marine Organisms Rearing Status
TEPCO’s plan for the discharge of ALPS treated water into the sea is based upon safety standards stipulated by Japanese law as well as international law and practices. In an effort to enable the public to “actually see” that ALPS treated water will have no impact on marine organisms, we are rearing marine organisms in tanks filled with ALPS treated water diluted with seawater.
We have been conducting marine organisms rearing tests (flounder, abalone, seaweed) in both tanks filled with only seawater, and tanks filled with ALPS treated water diluted with seawater, and posting the results online. On this page, live video of rearing status can also viewed 24/7 via webcams.
On the website you can also find pamphlets on the reviews conducted by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), and radiological environmental impact assessments regarding the discharge of ALPS treated water into the sea, which have been localized into different languages.
We will continue to strive to disseminate information on ALPS treated water in an easy-to-understand manner to parties within and outside Japan.
