Experts on radiation and soil pollution on Wednesday attended the first meeting of the panel set up by the Environment Ministry.
The government plans to launch a model decontamination project in 12 of the prefecture’s municipalities before focusing on severely contaminated areas early next year.
The panel is to discuss how much topsoil must be scraped away for effective decontamination, as well as standards and methods for municipalities’ temporary storage of radioactive soil.
