Tokyo Electric Power Co. said Wednesday that it found radioactive water dripping out one of the newly installed steel above-ground tanks it was using at the crippled Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant in place of the leaky covered storage reservoirs.

Tepco told reporters that only about 1 liter of water leaked and poses no serious impact on the environment, adding the utility is investigating to determine the cause of the leak.
