FUKUSHIMA, Japan (AVN/NHK/CNN) - The Japanese government will spend about $470 million trying to get rid of contaminated water at one of its nuclear power plants.

The Tokyo Electric Power Company has had huge problems since an earthquake and tsunami hit in 2011.

Those set off meltdowns at three different reactors at the plant.

The Japanese government announced that it will step in to help run the plant.
