Water contamination reached west Kanagawa

water contamination reached west Kanagawa


100 Bq/Kg of cesium was measured from largemouth bass on 5/26/2012.
The bass was taken from Ashinoko lake (300km from Fukushima plant) in west Kanagawa. Kanagawa prefectural government assumes it was because of biological concentration.

There is Sagamiko lake at 40 km north east to Ashinoko lake. This is the headwater area of Yokohama and Kawasaki. Because it is closer to Fukushima, tap water of Yokohama and Kawasaki is likely to be contaminated as well.

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.
