  • Fukushima Pref. to begin research on forest decontamination

    FUKUSHIMA (Kyodo) -- Fukushima Prefecture will start studying ways to decontaminate forests tainted by radioactive materials from the crisis-hit nuclear power plant in the prefecture, local officials said.

    Aiming to find effective methods to clean up forests near residential areas, the prefecture's research center will soon conduct experimental felling in the evacuation preparation area outside the 20-km no-entry zone from the Fukushima Daiichi power station.
