A basic plan on how to handle the water treated with multi-nuclide removal equipment, etc. (treated water*) in the future that is currently being stored in tanks will be put forth by the government based on the discussions by the government subcommittee on the handling of treated water, and upon obtaining the understanding of stakeholders, such as the local community.
TEPCO will listen to the opinions of stakeholders and carefully make decisions to take an appropriate course of action
based on the policy put forth by the government.
Until this time, we will continue to keep the treated water* safely stored in tanks.
See the Treated Water Portal Site for information on the future handling of treated water*.
Note on “Water treated with multi-nuclide removal equipment etc.” is notated.
Treated water for which the sum of concentration ratios required by law, with the exception of tritium, is less than 1 is notated as either, “water treated with multi-nuclide removal equipment etc.” or “treated water,” and treated water that has not been completely treated is notated as, “water treated with multi-nuclide removal equipment etc. (for which the sum of concentration ratios required by law equals or exceeds 1)”. When referring to both of the aforementioned types of treated water collectively, the notation, “treated water*” is used.
