It said a worker spotted water leaking at a rate of one drip per 3-4 seconds shortly after midday on June 5.

The contents were quickly moved to a nearby empty tank, one of dozens that are being used for contaminated water transferred from underground reservoirs.The leak stopped after about 4 hours. The spillage amounted to less than 1 liter, which TEPCO said would have minimal impact on the environment.
