The Fukushima nuclear plant  has more than 330,000 tonnes of water  stored in pits, basements and tanks with varying levels of toxicity. The 300+ tonne water leak last week was from a tank similar to the others across the site. The Japanese Nuclear Regulation Authority is concerned that further spills may occur from the badly constructed tanks.
