Amusement Park Barge to Store Fukushima’s Deadly Water?

The pontoon-type structure which can hold a maximum of 18,000 tonnes of water will be handed over to Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) by its owner which has been using it as a floating park for anglers, they said.

Called a “Mega-Float,” it measures 136 metres (450 feet) long, 46 metres wide and three metres high and can hold up to 10,000 tonnes of water without sinking. It is owned by the Pacific coast city of Shimizu southwest of Tokyo.
