” Tokyo Electric Power Company says it will release all radiation data taken at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant to improve information disclosure.
TEPCO made the announcement on Monday after mounting criticism about its handling of tainted rainwater leaking into the sea.
Its workers had been aware since April last year that radiation levels in a drainage channel at the No.2 reactor building rose every time it rained. But it did not make the problem public for months.
The workers were worried that it might impact talks with local farmers about a plan to discharge treated groundwater into the sea.
TEPCO will name an executive officer posted to the plant who is responsible for communicating information to the public.
President Naomi Hirose said his company will implement measures that take into account the public’s viewpoint. ”
