TOKYO, Reuters – A wall of ice that was supposed to stop groundwater flow at Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi Power Plant operated by Tokyo Electric (TEPCO), may have partly melted. NHK broadcaster reported Friday.

TEPCO intends to strengthen the wall by December 1st and is looking at other countermeasures, NHK reported.

It was constructed to protect groundwater from the nuclear plant’s wrecked reactor. This is part of an expensive and difficult effort to safeguard the site after the earthquake and tsunami of 2011.

TEPCO didn’t immediately confirm the details of this report.
