Fukushima Reactor Water Leak Sources Admitted By TEPCO

Buried in the most recent Roadmap document is some useful information about how and where reactor water is leaking out of the buildings.

Along with the contaminated water leak to the cable tunnel outside of unit 2, TEPCO has now admitted a leak location for unit 1. The north side of the turbine building is specifically identified as the leak location where there is a pipe opening.   u1_current
