Radioactive Fukushima water to be released into the ocean

The Japanese government has announced that radioactive water from the now-defunct Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant  will soon be released into the ocean  after undergoing treatment.
According to the Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA), the release of more than one million tons of water will begin by either spring or summer 2023. It added that regulators had deemed it safe to gradually discharge the water in the Pacific Ocean via a tunnel, but not before it undergoes treatment and dilution.
