Why is there a rising apprehension regarding japan’s plan of discharging water from the Fukushima power plant?

Amid the rising environmental concerns around the world, Japan’s new plan of discharging treated wastewater from the Fukushima power plant into the ocean comes as a surprise. Many countries like Russia, China, and South Korea have raised serious concerns regarding the same.

Maria the spokesperson for Russia’s Foreign Ministry said, ” We express serious concern in this regard and expect the government of Japan to demonstrate due transparency.” Russia is also, asking for more detailed explanations on it.

China and South Korea have also raised similar objections and have called this move “unacceptable”. Whereas, the US has praised Japan’s plan. The problem is being seen in not assessing the environmental risks for the Pacific region. As a result, Seoul is also planning to bring this decision to an international court.

It is believed that currently water is held in steel tanks and Tritium, fairly harmless, in low concentrations remains in the wastewater, according to Japan.

But is it a viable option for the long run or another cost to the environment?

It is yet to be seen.
