After the tragic earthquakes last year in Japan, there was a major issue with storing water that was used to cool the damaged reactors. Here is an update from the New York Times that brings the story up to date. We would love to know if there were any frac tanks used in the containment of that water. Have you seen use of frac tanks for storage of water near you in the Los Angeles area?

From the NY Times article.

Before the earthquake and tsunami that hit northern Japan in March 2011, nuclear energy had been making something of a comeback. Concerns about global warming had led a range of environmentalists to set aside their concerns and join in pushing for the revival of an industry whose growth had stalled after the Three Mile Island accident in 1979 and the Chernobyl disaster in 1986.

That was all changed by the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station, whose three active generators suffered meltdowns.
