At Watari district, where radiation level is quite high among Fukushima city, decontamination has been gradually done. The work had started from higher area around Mt. Benten to lower area near Abukuma river. Now, the work around river side area was begun.
The works of the day was removing topsoil using shovel, high-pressure water jet cleaning, and cutting branches of garden trees.
According to a site supervisor, the target value of radiation level at soil grounds is 0.4 μSv/h. Regarding asphalt grounds, it is very difficult to lessen the radiation level, because cesium got into holes of the asphalt.
