Over time rain and snow washed plutonium, radiocesium, and other radioactive particles onto the forest floor.
The waste volumes are so large -- estimated to be 30 million cubic meters (enough to fill the 55,000-seat Tokyo Dome more than 20 times) -- and the material so complex that the final steps of management need to be carefully optimized, even if the main contaminant is relatively short-lived radiocesium.

It has also been shown that dosages of cesium chloride at 250 mg can double the effectiveness of flushing radioactive cesium from both humans and animals, cutting the effective half-life of radiocesium from 110 to 60 to 80 days, thus decreasing the chances of developing cancers.
