Video released has shown US-Japan joint forces making deliveries of fresh water containers, to be used to cool the damaged reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear plant. The video was taken on the pier of the plant.

The water containers are delivered aboard flat bed vessels supplied by the US Navy. The vessels are pushed by a tug boat of the Japanese Maritime Self Defense Force.

According to the Tokyo Electric Power Company, radiation exceeding government safety limits has seeped into groundwater under the quake-stricken nuclear plant. But experts say it is unlikely to contaminate drinking water supplies.

The leak is still a concern and an indicator of how far Tokyo Electric Power is from stabilizing dangerously overheating reactors.
