Water supply concern for Okutama
Mizuho Aoki's Oct. 8 article "Okutama cesium level seen spiking" considers the potential risk to crops in the area, and mentions wasabi in particular as being studied for possible radioactive contamination.
Strangely, the article fails to mention the fact that Lake Okutama is a major source of tap water for Tokyo. I suspect there are readers who may be interested to know that Tokyo tap water comes from an area with cesium contamination at levels equivalent to the Chernobyl evacuation zones.
