Asahi Shimbun, Dec 13, 2014 (emphasis added): NRA head signals massive release of tainted water to help decommission Fukushima site — The head of Japan’s nuclear watchdog said contaminated water stored at the crippled Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant should be released into the ocean… Shunichi Tanaka, the chairman of the Nuclear Regulation Authority, made the comment Dec. 12 after visiting the facility… “I was overwhelmed by the sheer number of tanks (holding water tainted with radioactive substances),” Tanaka told reporters, indicating they pose a danger to decommissioning work. “We have to dispose of the water… We also have to obtain the consent of local residents in carrying out the work, so we can somehow mitigate (the increase in tainted water)… While (the idea) may upset people, we must do our utmost to satisfy residents of Fukushima,” Tanaka said, adding that the NRA would provide information to local residents based on continuing studies of radioactive elements in local waters.

Senior NRC scientist Dana Powers with Sandia National Laboratories, Apr. 1, 2011: Should the accident progress so that molten core debris can penetrate the reactor vessel and molten core debris cascade into the drywell… the core debris interactions with the concrete will lead to the… release of droplets of core debris 1-5 micrometers in size that will contain the radionuclides at the bulk core debris concentration.
