NHK Nuclear Watch, Nov. 27, 2013 (at 2:15 in): Toxic Fuel Removal Underway [...] Potential risks — Tepco said that if an earthquake or some other event were to cause a container to fall, it would be ready to act appropriately. The crane is 30 meters above ground level. A fall from that height could [disturb or destroy?] the lid or even damage the fuel inside the container. That could cause radioactive water or other substances to leak.
Nuclear Watch: Toxic Fuel Removal Underway
co: Immediate release, Nov. 26, 2013: Dust inside the fuel assemblies was stirred up while fuel was loaded at the cask pit. This did not hinder the work but was found to have resulted in reduced underwater visibility. Running water from a hose was used to remove dust on the cask lid flange. The dust was stirred up during this work [...] The visibility inside the cask pit was improved after we suctioned water from inside the cask pit [...] the same operation will be performed in case of low visibility. Dust on the flange will be suctioned with a pump and returned into the pool through a filter so that the dust can be prevented from being stirred up.
