As Fukushima Diary has been warning, it became official that Tepco cannot purify all the contaminated water by ALPS (Advanced Liquid Processing System) by the end of March, Tepco announced on 1/23/2015.

Until last December, Tepco estimated the purify-able capacity to be 3,760 m3 / day from January for some reason. However, they admitted the actual purify-able capacity is only 55% of it.

Abe announced contaminated water is perfectly under control in order to host Tokyo Olympic Games in 2020. He made Tepco promise to purify all the contaminated water by the end of this March. However it was a baseless plan from the first place.

It is not clear if they can ever purify all the stocked contaminated water.
