Japan to Quit Pumping Water into Sea

Japan will stop pumping radioactive water from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plants into the sea on Sunday. It will continue, however, pumping radioactive water from the nuclear reactors into tanks, and it may need to resume pumping into the sea should it encounter more problems with the reactors’ cooling systems. Still, the move is hoped to quell worries in China and South Korea. One of the plant’s operator’s vice presidents said Sunday, “"I would like to apologize from my heart over the worries and troubles we are causing for society.”
