How TEPCO plans to build an ice wall at Fukushima

TEPCO has announced that it will start operations in March that will enable workers to eventually remove highly-contaminated water in trenches seaside of Fukushima Daiichi unit 2.

Underground trenches for piping and power cables were flooded after the 11 March 2011 tsunami; this water is highly contaminated. A leak in April 2011 between units 2 and 3 from the trench into the Fukushima Daiichi port was stopped with concrete, but may still be leaking into groundwater within the site. Measures have been taken to seal off the trenches from the sea, but given the level of contamination, even a small leak significantly raises the seawater's radioactive inventory.
