TEPCO announced a big press conference to be held out at J Village. So far the only report out of this event is that TEPCO has announced they will remove all of the water from the ponds by June. This came with obligatory bowing by TEPCO executives. The journalists that had to travel out to J Village for this must have been thrilled to have to go all the way there for something that could have been done in Tokyo.
A government industry minister has said he will make TEPCO move all pond water into above ground steel tanks. Strontium has been detected outside the number 1 pond Antimony and Ruthenium were also found outside the number 1 pond. Other readings for the pond are under analysis. TEPCO also released this rough overview of tank capacity and use at the site. TEPCO also admits that the number 1 pond is leaking but only 50% full, indicating that the ponds leak somewhere other than the probe location at the top wall, possibly the plastic sheet seams.
