''It was like passing a boundary to dive / Into the sun-filled water, brightly leafed / And limbed and lighted out from bank to bank. / That's how the stars shine during the day.'' -- Wallace Stevens

Tokyo Electric Power Co. (9501) reported another breach of the defenses it has built at the Fukushima nuclear plant in its more than two-year struggle to stop leaks of radioactive water into the soil and sea.

Just weeks after the utility backtracked from earlier statements and acknowledged radiated water was flowing into the Pacific Ocean at a rate of 300 tons a day, it has found another leak from a storage tank.

Nuclear Plant Construction on Track, But at What Cost?

 

On August 7, representatives and project partners of South Carolina Electric & Gas led local journalists across the giant, cratered bed of granite on the shore of Lake Monticello that is the V.C. Summer nuclear site.

Against a bustling backdrop that features the world’s largest crane towering over 1,900 well-paid workers, they championed a controversial $10 billion endeavor to install two new electricity-generating reactors as prudent, cost-efficient and on-track, despite delays.

"The troubled Fukushima nuclear plant's operators are facing yet more criticism. On Friday the Tokyo Electric Power Co released this footage of a probe from one of the reactors. But Japan's nuclear watchdog said on Monday that radioactive water is seeping into the ocean creating an "emergency" Tepco is struggling to contain. The contaminated groundwater has breached an underground barrier and is rising towards the surface, says the nuclear regulator."
