    Toshiba and IHI have developed a mobile water treatment system:

    The system, which is mounted in truck, can filter about 1 ton of water in an hour. If the input water is contaminated with high levels of cesium, the end product will have below 10 Bq/kg of radioactivity: far below the current legal limit of 200 Bq/kg (and below a proposed new limit of 10 Bq/kg).

    The system will likely be used to clean up contaminated ditches, ponds, and pools.
