Japan's Tokyo Electric Power Co (Tepco) has started the fourth discharge of ALPS-treated water to the sea from the damaged Fukushima Daiichi NPP. In line with the previous three discharges, the release will include 7,800 cubic metres of water over some 17 days after tests confirm that the radioactivity level meets the standards set by the government and the utility. This will be the last discharge for the fiscal year ending March. No abnormal tritium levels were detected in nearby waters following the previous three discharges, according to Tepco.
