JP Gov distributes money for the local governments to accept radioactive debris
Japanese prime minister Noda talked on Nihon TV, Japanese government is going to pay money for local governments to accept radioactive debris.
Japanese government is going to distribute radioactive debris even to the local governments which don’t even have proper facility to process it, so the government is planning to pay them money to enhance the disposal field.
To reassure the citizens, Japanese government is also planning to pay for the measurement of radiation level of the radioactive debris.
On 3/6/2012, Mr. Matsumoto, the city mayor of Omura Nagasaki announced they are going to “consider” accepting radioactive debris. He is also planning to enhance disposal field if they can accept the radioactive debris.
Now it’s likely that North Kyushu area will be contaminated as well.
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.
