Tepco is about to discharge pumped ground water to sea, "21,000 Bq/m3 of Tritium is in"Tepco is about to discharge pumped ground water to sea, “They won’t remove 21,000 Bq/m3 of Tritium”:

According to Tepco, they are ready to discharge pumped ground water to the sea.
Currently 400 tones of ground water flows to the plant everyday. To control this water, Tepco made 12 wells to pump up the water before flowing to the plant.
Tepco is now ready to discharge the water pumped from 4 of 12 wells. They state they only need the “approvals” of the stakeholders.
The water is not purified before discharge. They only analyze the nuclides.
From the sample to the water, they measured 21,000 Bq/m3 of Tritium on 4/16/2013.
However, Tepco will not remove Tritium to say the safety regulation is 60,000,000 Bq/m3.
Removing tritium is not impossible but it costs more than removing Cs-134/137 according to Assistant prof. Koide from Kyoto university.
