The Japanese government has decided to release treated radioactive water accumulating at the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant into the sea. Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga announced the decision on April 13, 2021, after having assessed there will be no negative impact on human health or the environment. The move came 10 years after a massive earthquake and tsunami triggered a triple meltdown at the plant in March 2011. The decision to release water from the plant has drawn protests from local fishermen and raised concerns from neighbouring countries.
