Efforts to Promote Decontamination and Revitalization
To ensure the return of evacuees at the earliest possible time, we send our employees to join decontamination activities led by the national and municipal governments, provide technical support, clean up houses, and provide assistance to those who return to their homes temporarily.
Radioactive materials are treated mainly by the national government and municipalities in accordance with the Act on Special Measures concerning the Handling of Pollution by Radioactive Materials and other relevant laws and regulations.
TEPCO, as the party concerned in the accidents, makes utmost efforts in cooperation with the national government and municipalities to enable evacuees to return home at the earliest possible time.
