Japanese workers managed to stop highly radioactive water from leaking into the sea in this worst nuclear crisis since Chernobyl, but contaminated water was still being pumped into the ocean. Japanese workers stemmed the radioactive leak using liquid glass. This was after many frantic attempts that included even sawdust and newspapers. They are still dealing with the problem of radioactive water. They have 60 million liters of contaminated water, and that is why low level radioactive water is still being pumped into the ocean.
