Tokyo Electric Power Co. said Tuesday that around 150 liters of water containing strontium and other radioactive substances has flowed into the Pacific from the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant.

Tepco said the amount of radioactive substances is estimated at around 26 billion becquerels. The impact will be “negligible” even if people continue to eat marine products from the area, the utility said.
