The $6.8 Billion Great Wall Of Japan: Fukushima Cleanup Takes On Epic Proportion | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED

The $6.8 Billion Great Wall Of Japan: Fukushima Cleanup Takes On Epic Proportion

To reduce the 300 tons of newly created radioactive water each day, TEPCO must cut off the flow of groundwater into the nuclear complex. To do that, it plans on building an ice wall that will surround the four reactors. TEPCO plans on building an intricate array of coolant pipes underneath the reactors, freezing the soil into a hardened ice wall that will block the flow of water. The ice wall will stretch one and a half kilometers around the reactors.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I thought the ice wall idea had been abandoned as unworkable, since there is no way to guarantee a solid impermeable barrier will form deep underground.
