Why does the industry not know all this before considering the money that has been funneled to them. If the particles are heavy a pipeline to the bottom of the trench just off shore would be where the water goes. Did some company get a pork-barrel contract to build all the holding tanks there.

TOKYO - Japan's industry ministry said Monday it would be safe to release water contaminated by the Fukushima nuclear disaster into the ocean, stressing that the health risk to humans would be "significantly small."
Discharging the water into the Pacific Ocean over the course of a year would amount to between just one-1,600th and one-40,000th of the radiation that humans are naturally exposed to, the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry told a government subcommittee on the issue.
Water used to cool the melted-down cores and groundwater near the disabled plant contains some radioactive materials, and is currently being collected and stored in tanks on the plant grounds.

Too bad they didn't go with thorium instead. The plant would still have been wrecked but the radiation danger would have been significantly lower.
