Fukushima Visited by IAEA as Tepco Faces Risk of Dumping Claims

United Nations atomic monitors began a weeklong mission to Japan’s wrecked Fukushima Dai-Ichi nuclear plant to review how contaminated water is being stored at the disaster site and assess decommissioning risks.

The 13-member International Atomic Energy Agency team will meet with Japanese regulators and Tokyo Electric Power Co. officials, the Vienna-based body said in a statement today. IAEA officials will visit the site where three Tepco reactors melted down in 2011 to see what is being done to stop radioactive-water leaks.
