Japan nuclear regulator: no chance radioactive water could enter sea

TOKYO, March 27 (Reuters) - There is no chance that highly radioactive water from reactor tubine buildings at Japan’s stricken nuclear plant could flow into the sea, the country’s Nuclear Safety Agency said on Sunday.

“Itt is inconceivable that this should happen. We think there is no chance of the stagnant water (in the buildings) flowing directly into the ocean,” a senior agency official told a news briefing when asked about such a scenario.

Separately, Tokyo Electric Power Co., the operator of the plant, said extremely high radioactivity readings from reactor No. 2 reported earlier on Sunday, might be wrong. (Writing by Tomasz Janowski)
