(Publicized by the Ministry of the Environment on March 27, 2016)
The Ministry of the Environment publicized the "Prospect for 5-year Ad-hoc Policy on Interim Storage Facility" on March 27, 2016.
The amount equivalent to the total amount of the soil and waste currently being stored on sites, such as schools or individuals' houses, will be transported to the ISF. Utmost efforts should be made to acquire the land for construction of the related facilities and it is targeted to transport an amount of the removed soil and waste equivalent to that currently being placed along the major roads to the ISF. By FY2020, it is forecast that transportation of approx. 5 million to 12.5 million m3 of removed soil and waste will be achieved. From which Temporary Storage Site to start transport is up to each municipality.
The above figure also includes the actual volume transported in FY2015 and FY2016 and planned transportation volume for FY2017, as well as planned transportation volume for FY2018 and the target transportation volume for FY2019 indicated in the FY2018 Policies for the ISF Program. This prospect can be revised as needed in light of the progress of the ISF Program.
