      TEPCO's plan to halt spread of radioactive water based on shaky theory .
      <http://ajw.asahi.com/article/0311disaster/fukushima/AJ201307130066>

      Tokyo Electric Power Co. has started taking measures to contain highly
      radioactive groundwater at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant, but its
      strategy is based on a theory that is disputed by industry experts.

      TEPCO insists that recently detected radioactive substances originated
      during the early stages of the disaster in 2011, and it is setting up
      barriers near the area of the initial water leak problems.

      However, even the Nuclear Regulation Authority (NRA) says it is
      currently impossible to pinpoint where the latest leaks are coming from.
      Some say the leakage could be anywhere within the intricate system to
      cool the melted reactors and the underground maze of pipes at the plant
      site.

      The utility's measures, intended to prevent the underground radioactive
      water from spilling into the sea, could end up exacerbating the problem,
      some experts have warned....
