Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Since these systems are not generally designed to filter sea water

Desalinization plants? If it will get rid of sodium and potassium chloride it will certainly block uranium and cesium particles or compounds. And clogging the filters with such contaminants would be the point, along with generating a much larger volume of relatively clean water which could be discharged into the ocean, or reinjected into the reactor cores for cooling. But the most immediately practical plan would be to make arrangements to use an existing RO facility and to pay for replacement fresh water via tankers for that portion of the plant devoted to decontamination along with paying for replacement or refurbishment of the contaminated RO equipment.
