Most of the commenters subscribe to the LNT (Linear No Threshold) theory which has been disproven many times. I saw no mention in the article about the half-life of tritium, and only a few in the comments. And nothing about the radiation level compared to the background radiation we get all the time--even more if you fly or live at high altitudes. Yes, small amounts of radiation appear to be GOOD for living tissue. I suggest all of the water be dumped; but to reduce the impact on the LNT people, dump it gradually and away from any drinking water intakes. (Gradually means the cooling water for the day, plus one tank.)
