Regulator undecided on nuclear plant fissure

A team of experts from Japan's nuclear regulator has still not decided whether one of the country's reactors stands on an active seismic fault.

The 4-member team from the Nuclear Regulation Authority wrapped up a 2-day survey at the Tsuruga nuclear power plant in Fukui Prefecture on Sunday.

The plant, now offline, is the only nuclear power station in Japan with a confirmed active fault in its compound. The fault is believed to have moved 4,000 years ago.

The team dug the ground near the fault and a nearby fissure called D-1 that runs directly below the Number 2 reactor.

If experts determine that the fissure would move with the fault, the plant cannot be put back online and may have to be scrapped.
