Homes in Fukushima become storage sites for radioactively contaminated soil
As local municipalities face delays in the construction of storage facilities for radioactively contaminated soil, residents here are being forced to store the soil on their own properties.

Last summer after the disaster at the Fukushima No. 1 Nuclear Power Plant, officials considered recommending that people in the Watari district of Fukushima, located around 1.5 kilometers from the city's center, evacuate homes where high radiation levels were detected.

Here, at the home of Tsuneo Ota, 66, a member of the Yamagiwa residential community, a sheet spread 3 meters wide, 4 meters deep and 1 meter high covers about 100 plastic cases of contaminated soil in his garden.

"I didn't think it would get this big," he says.

The contaminated soil is put in 45-liter cases that can't be opened once they are sealed. It is the first time the cases, usually used for medical waste, have been used in decontamination work. The cases are stacked in two layers and surrounded by around 1,000 bags of soil. It's said that a 30-centimeter layer of non-contaminated soil can block 98 percent of radiation.
