Similar meetings to hear from additional local parties will take place in the future, toward a final decision by the national government on a disposal method for the water. Contaminated water at the Fukushima Daiichi NPPs, continuingly generated during the cooling of fuel debris in the reactor buildings, is being purified using the Advanced Liquid Processing System (ALPS). One ongoing issue, however, has been the handling of the treated water containing tritium, which ALPS cannot remove. In a report released in February on discussions up to that time, an ANRE committee said that offshore release and vapor release were both practical methods for handling the treated water, adding that measures to prevent unfounded fears and rumors also needed to be enhanced and strengthened.
