170,000 Bq/Kg from the soil of storage reservoir in Fukushima

Tohoku Regional Agricultural Administration Office and Fukushima prefectural government conducted radiation measurement for the ground soil of  14 storage reservoirs in Fukushima from 3/26 to 4/6/2012. Sample is dried soil from ground of storage reservoir (5 ~ 7cm deep).

Cesium134 and 137 were measured from all of those samples.

 

(Cesium 134 (Bq/Kg), Cesium 137 (Bq/Kg) )

  • Sudori, Fukushima city                                 13,000       18,000
  • Numata, Date city                                          25,000       37,000
  • Tanichitamei, Date city                                 7,400         11,000
  • Shinnuma, Date city                                     43,000        62,000
  • Matsuzawakamiike, Kawamata machi   15,000        21,000

  • Teichiike, Yabuki machi                                  680            1,200

 

They also conducted radiation measurement for 86 storage reservoirs in Fukushima.

Cesium was measured at 8 locations as well.

Cesium 134 : <1Bq/L ~ 5.7Bq/L

Cesium 137 : 1.3 Bq/L ~ 7.9 Bq/L

Total : 1.8 Bq/L ~ 13.6 Bq/L
