FILE - In this March 15, 2011 file photo released by Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO), smoke rises from the badly damaged Unit 3 reactor, left, next to the Unit 4 reactor covered by an outer wall at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear complex in Okuma town, northeastern Japan. Japan’s crippled nuclear power plant is struggling to find space to store tens of thousands of tons of highly contaminated water used to cool its broken reactors. Up to 200,000 tons of radioactive water - enough to fill more than 50 Olympic-sized swimming pools - are being stored in hundreds of gigantic tanks built around the Fukushima Dai-ichi plant. The amount is expected to more than triple within three years, mainly because ground water is leaking into damaged reactor buildings.
