Tokyo Electric Power Co. (9501) will use a truck-mounted filtration system to clean strontium from water stored at the Fukushima site as it struggles to overcome technical problems with its existing water-processing facility.

I never understood why a radioactive energy would be used before it was know how to properly take care of the waste material.

Good luck with that ever happening again. We already sucked all of the cheap oil out of the ground.

Hope it works. From now on plan ahead and execute the plan and don't chop it apart just because "someone" has "all the answers". Spend a nickle on safety.

Dang - we have so much trouble with our water because of so many faulty efforts at cleaning it. We always thought there would be enough water - not so. We are wastrels of our most precious commodities. When it is gone it is gone and we will be long gone.
