88 Bq/Kg from well water in Minamisoma Fukushima

Cesium is penetrating into ground water. People are having less and less safe water.

88 Bq/Kg of cesium was measured from well water in Fukushima.

On 9/11/2012, ministry of the environment announced they measured 88 Bq/Kg of cesium from well water in Odaka Minamisoma city, Fukushima.

The sample was taken in June and July of 2012. The safety limit is 10Bq/Kg. They measured cesium more than 10 Bq/Kg at 2 of 436 locations. They also measured cesium less than 10Bq/Kg from 4 of 436 locations.

They commented, they found something like mud in the well water that they measured 88 Bq/Kg of cesium from.

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.
