Japanese officials said highly radioactive plutonium has been found in the soil in five places around the damaged nuclear station. Workers at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear station in Japan also say highly radioactive water has been found outside the damaged station. Tokyo Electric Power Company, which operates the station, said that it does not believe radiation levels are high enough to be a risk to human health. Earlier on Monday, Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano said he suspects a partial meltdown is causing the water leak. He says the government's main goal is to stop the poison water getting into the ground water system.

Another great job. Sorry that it took a while to get to it. It's about 2 a.m. and I'm tired but I think these are all of the significant changes to be made:

"Japanese official said"
--> Japanese officials said
--> A Japanese official said

--> Daiichi

"radio active"
--> radioactive

"Tokyo Electric Power Company which operates the station said that ..."
--> Tokyo Electric Power Company, which operates the station, said that ...
(It just needs the commas added.)

--> meltdown

"the government main goal"
--> "the government's main goal"
