Tokyo Electric Power Co. said Tuesday that it suspects radioactive water is leaking from another underground storage tank at the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, as it continues to grapple with massive accumulation of radioactive water at the site.
The suspicion of a leak at the No. 1 tank arose after TEPCO started transferring contaminated water inside the No. 2 underground tank where leakage was confirmed over the weekend.
TEPCO spokesman Masayuki Ono told a press conference the utility is considering removing the liquid inside the two tanks to other water tanks placed on the ground.
