Fukushima Water Filtration Plan Halted After Several Hours

Tokyo Electric was confident that their water filtration system at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant would save the plant from further devastation, unfortunately after just five hours of operation the company was forced to shut down the system.

Plant workers are currently running out of space to house the plants contaminated water and without a working filtration system they could now watch as overflow begins to occur within the next several days due to holding tanks capacity.

The system was shut down when Cesium levels became so high that a filter change was required, a change that was suppose to take a month to reach, not the five hours it consumed.

At this time the company is not discussing any backup plans they may have for the plant, however some experts are worried that the plant will once again be forced to dump their overflow into the ocean.
