#Fukushima I Nuke Plant: More on the "Pit That Stopped Leaking"

Here's the picture released by TEPCO, with the statement that the leak from the "crack" stopped at 5:38AM on April 6.

Does this look like a "crack" to you? This is another minor detail that's been bothering me (the other one being "above 1,000 milli-sievert" radiation level). It still looks awfully round. It still looks like a regular drain from the substrate, and I suspect there was a drain hole on the floor of the pit above to drain accidental water in the pit through the substrate (and that's why there was a dirty pool of water in the pit, as the contaminated water coming from the substrate flooding the pit through the drain).

Just my conjecture. No proof.
