TEPCO has begun pumping water out of the number 2 pond at the plant to above ground tanks. TEPCO cites the decision due to this tank leaking the most. Water is being moved at 20 tons per hour. Radiation levels around the number 2 pond have been rising.
In a TEPCO report some work done on the power system for the unit 2 spent fuel pool is cited. TEPCO used pink plastic sheeting to make what they classified as small animal protection. TEPCO apparently does not understand rats and mice do not see plastic sheet as a challenge.
TEPCO found extremely high radiation levels and plutonium concentrations in the port. The areas directly near the reactor intakes had been concreted over to try to keep radiation levels down. The areas where the radiation readings were found were in the main port area. TEPCO also reported some even higher fish contamination readings. Fish in the port were found with as high as 430,000 bq/kg of cesium.
