Tepco plans to pump up groundwater and discharge it to the sea


200 ~ 400 m3 of groundwater flows into the basement floors of reactor 1 ~ 4 on the daily basis.
Tepco still injects 600m3 of water to reactor 1 ~3 everyday, contaminated water increases by 800 ~ 1000 m3 everyday. Currently, 98,000 m3 of contaminated water is under reactor 1 ~ 4.

To reduce groundwater to flow into the basement floors by half, Tepco is going to make 14 wells (30cm diameter, 32m deep) at 80 ~ 200 m far from the plants on the mountain side.
The pumped up water will be discharged to the sea directly, but they measured tritium from one of the three wells which Tepco made experimentally. METI states they want to ask local governments and Fisheries Cooperative Association for agreement to discharge the contaminated water.

    oh yeah go and dump it into the sea……they should be fined and charged for wrongful disposal of waste and many other charges

    This could relieve some of the steam coming from the ground at ClusterFuku.
    I wonder how that could be?

    So, instead of devising ways to store and decontaminate they continue to destroy the Pacific. Japan should have been invaded well over a year ago when they refused help from the Russians. TEPCO and Japanese government officials should have been dangling from lamp posts a long time ago. I have absolutely zero respect for a hive-minded culture. The stupid people ignore this ongoing catastrophe, that grows worse by the minute, because if they can’t see it, then it isn’t real to them. They see with their eyes only when true sight resides in the mind.

  6. Gone full retard says:

    MADNESS!!! the entire world should be up in arms about this !!Lets just dump our poison into the ocean..are they fucking insane?
    What is wrong with these idiots??
    TEPCO officials should be on trial for Crimes against Humanity while the International community makes sure the enormous problems are getting solved properly.
    No punishment is too great for what they have already done.
