Low-level Tritium In Water Monitors
The Fukushima Daiichi plant began the controversial discharge of treated and diluted wastewater into the Pacific Ocean on Aug. 24, and the first release has been completed. Such discharge will continue for an estimated 40 years as part of the plant's decommissioning. This release is being strongly protested due to anticipated environmental impacts.
