Following up this article..Hirano reconstruction minister suggests to set uninhabited area around Fukushima plants

Japanese government is planning to build 88km of wall to barricade the worst contaminated zone in Fukushima.
Hazard area and planned evacuating zone in 20km area will be mixed and separated into 3 zones,

50~mSv/y zone (You can’t enter.)
20~50mSv/y zone (You can’t live.)
~20mSv/y zone (Advisory evacuating area)

Japanese government is planning to barricade the 50mSv/y zone with the wall for 88km.

Reconstruction ministry talks the wall is planned to run in the middle of a town or a village. Because local governments are against the policy, the negotiation of the government is not going well. Japanese government is planning to define the area by mid May.

The wall is made of steal seemingly, over 2m high and blue. It looks like the panel in a construction area, a construction company talks.



About this site

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.
