The group of experts and nuclear regulatory officials have been discussing what to do about the Oi nuclear plant. Oi is currently the only nuclear plant running in Japan.
The group has now bumped a decision to Wednesday. The NRA declared 400,000 for the previous activity of a fault will become their rule next July but it appears clear under this concept the experts are in agreement the fault is active. The debate had been if the fault was active or not in more recent history of 120,000 to 130,000 years.There is also concern that a landslide caused the evidence they are finding. According to Japan Today they are now in agreement the fault was active since 125,000 years ago but the landslide issue remains.
The image below from NHK shows the fault line and where it crosses an emergency feed water pipeline. This is a critical back up water source for the reactors. The fissure also runs under the crtical buildings of the plant.
