It is possibility that they buried it themselves and “found” it themselves.
Kashiwa local government buried 25 tons of radioactive refuse incineration ash into their disposal area between 6/4/11 ~ 6/22/2011.
They abandoned it at least for 3 times and it was 70,800 Bq/Kg.
The disposal area is surrounded by residential streets, schools and hospitals.
Also, they “secretly” abandoned radioactive waste (Cs-134: 23,663 Bq/Kg; Cs-137: 28,884 Bq/Kg; Total: 52,547 Bq/Kg) in the middle of a residential streets, where is 1.2km away from Kashiwa station, JR line.
It was accidentally found by a citizen who has a geiger counter.
They reported to the city govenment, but they only said “Good job.”
What does “52,547 Bq/Kg” mean?
In Chernobyl, Soviet union set the mandatory evacuation area where they measured 1,480,000 Bq/SQUARE METER.
This website updates the latest news about the Fukushima nuclear plant and also archives the past news from 2011. Because it's always updated and added live, articles, categories and the tags are not necessarily fitted in the latest format.
I am the writer of this website. About page remains in 2014. This is because my memory about 311 was clearer than now, 2023, and I think it can have a historical value. Now I'm living in Romania with 3 cats as an independent data scientist.
Actually, nothing has progressed in the plant since 2011. We still don't even know what is going on inside. They must keep cooling the crippled reactors by water, but additionally groundwater keeps flowing into the reactor buildings from the broken parts. This is why highly contaminated water is always produced more than it can circulate. Tepco is planning to officially discharge this water to the Pacific but Tritium is still remaining in it. They dilute this with seawater so that it is legally safe, but scientifically the same amount of radioactive tritium is contained. They say it is safe to discharge, but none of them have drunk it.
