Fukushima Frozen Wall Progress 2017

frozenwall_2017This map of the frozen wall, published January 17th shows the current status of the project. Most of the sea side and flanking walls are fully frozen according to the sensors TEPCO uses to monitor the wall.

Sections of the land side wall show clear gaps. These locations are where they have opted to not turn on the equipment. This was done to allow water to flow into the reactor building area to prevent the ground water from dropping too low, causing contaminated water to leak out of the reactor buildings.

Sea monitoring and discharge canals closer to the port still show indicators that contamination may be leaking out as those locations have not decreased further since the wall system was fully frozen.
