The Fukushima City government on Tuesday announced a two-year decontamination plan to lower radiation levels in the area which is located about 60 kilometers from the stricken Daiichi nuclear power plant. NHK reported that the decontamination measures will cover some 110,000 houses.
According to the plan, atmospheric radiation levels will be reduced to less than 1 microsievert per hour. Priority will be given to schools, homes, office buildings and roads (but not fields). The government will ask private-sector companies to help with the decontamination process, NHK reported.© Japan Today
