In this Oct. 22, 2012 photo, Yuichi Okamura, manager of the Water Treatment System Department at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant, speaks during an exclusive interview at the Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) headquarters in Tokyo. As the March 11, 2011 disaster unfolded, Okamura - first in Tokyo and later in Fukushima - was among those who feverishly devised emergency steps to inject water into the overheating reactors and spent fuel pools to bring the plant under tenuous control. He was tasked with tackling the problem of radioactive water leak and setting up a treatment system that would decontaminate the water to reduce health risks for workers and environmental damage in case it spilled out.
