The government of Japan announced the decision via a statement. On the premise of strict compliance with regulatory standards that have been established, we select oceanic release, Japanese Government, via NPR. According to NPR, the wastewater has been treated but it remains radioactive.
Release of the wastewater will occur over the course of decades, beginning in two years from now.
