A nuclear waste disposal facility at the crippled Fukushima Daiichi power plant will be filled up in several days with radioactive floodwater diverted from near its No. 2 and 3 reactors, officials of Tokyo Electric Power Co., the plant's operator, said Monday.


The operator, known as TEPCO, plans to suspend the diversion until the middle of June once the facility becomes filled with the contaminated water, to wait for a new water treatment facility to begin operating.


While a temporary storage tank is also being prepared, its installation would take until around early July, according to the officials.
