Fukushima operator to start compensation payouts with $600 million — RT

Fukushima operator to start compensation payouts with $600 million — RT: "TEPCO also shared its intention to drop bags with Zeolite, a mineral that absorbs radiation, into the ocean near the water scoops of Fukushima-1 reactors 2 and 3. The operation, which is aimed at reducing the level of contamination in the seawater, will start as soon as the weather permits.
Meanwhile, the construction of a steel wall in the sea in front of reactor 2 is still underway. The wall will prevent further leakage of radioactive water into the ocean. The contaminated water is still penetrating the drainage system of the reactor and is being collected into the tank of the condensing system.
Despite the efforts, the level of contaminated water in the reactor buildings is not going down. The radiation level in the lower units of the reactor has increased 17 times since April 8, according to Japan’s Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency. On Friday, the radiation probe taken at the reactor showed 1,000 millisieverts per hour."
