Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said efforts to stop leaks were still insufficient, but defended TEPCO for detecting the problem more quickly than the last White Nike Air Presto On Feet
TOKYO Another day, another radioactive water spill. The operator of the meltdown plagued Fukushima Dai ichi nuclear plant says at least 430 litres (110 gallons) spilled when workers overfilled a storage tank without a gauge that could have warned them of the danger.
So far, the leaks have occurred in easy to assemble rubber seamed tanks that TEPCO had built quickly to accommodate swelling amounts of contaminated water, and the plant has promised to replace them with more durable welded tanks, which take more time and cost more to build. TEPCO has been criticized for building shoddy tanks to cut cost.
"We could have, and should have, prevented the overflow," he said.

TEPCO said the tank and four others in the same area were already filled up to 98 per cent of its designed capacity, as in many other tanks elsewhere on the plant.
"That's only common sense," Tsutsui, also a member of a citizens group of experts proposing safety measures for the plant. "But that seems to be the routine at the Fukushima Dai ichi. I must say these are not accidents. There must be a systematic problem in the way things are run over there."
The new leak is sure to add to public concern and Nike Presto Navy criticism of TEPCO and the government for their handling of the nuclear crisis. In August, the utility reported a 300 ton leak from another storage tank, one of a string of leaks in recent months.
top, or build them on a tilted ground without building a level foundation.
In recent meetings, regulators criticized TEPCO for even lacking basic skills to properly measure radioactivity in contaminated areas, and taking too long to find causes in case of problems. They also have criticized the one foot (30 centimetre) high protective barriers around the tanks as being too low.
That came after the utility and the government acknowledged that contaminated groundwater was seeping into ocean at a rate of 300 tons a day for some time.
Tetsuro Tsutsui, an engineer and expert of industrial tanks, said the latest problem was emblematic of how TEPCO runs the precarious plant. He said it was "unthinkable" to fill tanks up to the Nike Presto Colourways
Experts have faulted TEPCO for sloppiness in its handling of the water management, including insufficient tank inspection records, lack of water gauges, as well as connecting hoses lying directly on the grass covered ground. Until recently, only one worker was assigned to 500 tanks in a two hour patrol.
The amount is tiny compared to the untold thousands of tons of radioactive water that have leaked, much of it into the Pacific Ocean, since a massive earthquake and tsunami wrecked the plant in 2011. But the error is one of many the operator has committed as it struggles to manage a seemingly endless, tainted flow.
TEPCO spokesman Masayuki Ono told an urgent news conference Thursday that the overflow occurred at a 450 ton tank without a water gauge and standing on an unlevel ground, slightly tilting toward the sea. The tank was already nearly full, but workers pumped in more contaminated water into it to maximize capacity as the plant was facing a serious storage crunch. Recent rainstorms that flooded tank yards and the subsequent need to pump up and store contaminated rainwater also added to the shortage, he said.
Plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Co. said Thursday workers detected the water spilling from the top of one large tank when they were Nike Air Presto Sneakers
TEPCO said the water then spilled out of a concrete barrier surrounding the tank and believed that most of it reached the sea via a ditch next to the river. The company later said, however, sea water samples taken just off the plant's coast remained below detectable levels.
patrolling the site the night before. The tank is one of about 1,000 erected on the grounds around the plant to hold water used to cool the melted nuclear fuel in the broken reactors.
