TEPCO to beef up monitoring team to raise data accuracy after errors | Kyodo News

Tokyo Electric Power Co. said Monday it will beef up its team for monitoring radiation levels in the environment affected by the ongoing crisis at its Fukushima nuclear plant, following errors last week that have undermined the credibility of its data.

The utility known as TEPCO said it will analyze radiation levels of air, groundwater, seawater and water that have been filling up the basement of reactor buildings and underground trenches with the help of third-party experts and officials of other utility firms.

The government's Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency, which has admonished TEPCO twice for miscalculations, said the Fukushima plant operator is expected to seek support of organizations such as Japan Chemical Analysis Center and firms including Japan Nuclear Fuel Ltd.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
