Where To Dump A Sea Tanker Full Of Highly Radioactive Water?

As I was beating up on Fox News on a friends blog I stumble across this story from them about the Japan nuclear crisis. The headline "Japan's Nuclear Rescuers: Inevitable Some of Them May Die Within Weeks" got my attention. 

It is actually a good update on the unfolding tragedy with information from one of the plant workers mothers.  She has passed along some information that if true is somewhat expected but startling none the less.

At the end of the story was the biggest surprise, A large sea tanker is being prepared to siphon and ship the water from the plant after it discovered that run-off containers and drainage tanks were almost full at three of the most critical reactors.  The government says it has yet to be decided where they will dispose of that water.
Read about the resin that is being sprayed on 95-thousand square yards at reactors 4 and 6 to hold the radioactive dust in place.

This reminded me of a garbage barge that went up and down the east coast in 1987 looking for a place to dump the garbage.  From New York the garbage traveled all the way to Belize before it turned around and came back to New York where it was met with a restraining order and legal battle.  Eventually the garbage was incinerated in Brooklyn.
