Japan : Radiation in seawater drops but remains high

Another article from NHK News :

" The operator of the disabled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power station says radiation levels in seawater near the plant are on the decline, but remain high.

Tokyo Electric Power Company says it detected 100 becquerels of iodine-131 per cubic centimeter in samples collected near the water intake of the No.2 reactor on Tuesday afternoon. That represents 2,500 times the legal limit.

The density was down from 7.5 million times the limit found in the same area on April 2nd. The decline in radioactivity levels comes after the firm stopped highly radioactive water from leaking through a pit outside the reactor on April 6th."
