The Fukushima prefectural government approved on Tuesday the delivery of radioactively contaminated soil and other waste, generated during cleanup work after the 2011 nuclear crisis, to interim storage facilities currently under construction in the prefecture.

To help accelerate the decontamination activities, the central government is seeking to begin moving radioactive waste to the interim storage sites by March 11, the fourth anniversary of the earthquake-tsunami calamity that triggered the world's worst nuclear accident since the 1986 Chernobyl disaster.

Work to build a makeshift storage yard at the facilities began earlier in February, but Fukushima Gov. Masao Uchibori had yet to approve the delivery, saying decisions on the facility construction and delivery of the radioactive waste are two separate issues.

FUKUSHIMA, Japan (Kyodo) -- The Fukushima prefectural government approved on Tuesday the delivery of radioactively contaminated soil and other waste, generated during cleanup work after the 2011 nuclear crisis, to interim storage facilities currently under construction in the prefecture.

To help accelerate the decontamination activities, the central government is seeking to begin moving radioactive waste to the interim storage sites by March 11, the fourth anniversary of the earthquake-tsunami calamity that triggered the world's worst nuclear accident since the 1986 Chernobyl disaster.

Work to build a makeshift storage yard at the facilities began earlier in February, but Fukushima Gov. Masao Uchibori had yet to approve the delivery, saying decisions on the facility construction and delivery of the radioactive waste are two separate issues.

Uchibori's announcement came after he discussed the issue with the mayors of Futaba and Okuma towns, host communities of the crippled Fukushima Daiichi complex and the planned interim storage. Uchibori said he will convey the decision to the central government on Wednesday.

In accepting the delivery, Fukushima demanded the central government legislate that the contaminated soil will be permanently disposed of outside the prefecture within 30 years and have a safety agreement, among other requests. The legislation was enacted last November.

Uchibori is set to meet with Environment Minister Yoshio Mochizuki and Reconstruction Minister Wataru Takeshita in the city of Fukushima on Wednesday and sign the safety agreement.

The central government had planned to begin moving radioactive soil in January, but the process was delayed due to difficulties in obtaining agreement from the local municipalities and residents.

The facilities are planned on around 16 square kilometers of land in Okuma and Futaba. They are expected to be capable of storing 30 million tons of soil and other radioactive waste, such as burned ash, but they are not for storing highly radioactive waste generated in the crippled plant.

Negotiations with landowners, however, have seen slow progress so far.

Message from Akiko Yui, President and Founder of TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital
I believe that helping animals in need, existing in symbiosis with animals, and fostering a loving heart lead to an improvement in one’s character of kindness and generosity. The killing of animals due to decisions made by administration goes against my firm belief in preventing cruelty to animals. Animal Rescue Fund’s most important goal is to reduce the number of animals killed in Japan to zero by urging administration to change, reform, and improve the prevention of cruelty to animals. In order to reduce the number of animals in need, we work to raise awareness and support for the importance of sterilization operations. Each year, we spay and neuter more than 1000 stray cats. We are always putting animals up for adoption to help those lives already born in finding a loving home.

TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital:
We first opened our TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital in February of 2011 in an effort to make our dream a reality - to lower the number of dogs and cats killed in Japan to zero. At our hospital, we spay and neuter cats to reduce the number of unfortunate stray cats. Our hospital strives to help unfortunate animals in need of medical care.
The lives of numerous pets and livestock were lost as a result of the unprecedented earthquake and tsunami that occurred in Japan on March 11th 2011 and the radiation disaster caused by the stricken Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. Animal Rescue Fund goes directly to the 20km evacuation zone around the stricken Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant to rescue animals.
Animal Rescue Fund is based in Kanagawa Prefecture’s TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital. Therefore, the animals that we rescue from Fukushima Prefecture are brought to TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital located in Kanagawa Prefecture. Here, the rescued animals receive medical care and are returned to their owners or are put up for adoption.
We also work in urging the government and administration of Japan to support the protection of animals in need.
