Major leakage can’t be fixed until early June

About the major leakage of highly contaminated water, Tepco has admitted 3 reservoirs are leaking to underground at least.

On 4/10/2013, they stated they are going to transfer the water to the filtered water tanks on the ground. Currently the leaking reservoirs stock 23,600 tones of highly contaminated water.

However, those tanks are still under construction. They estimate it would be finished early June to transfer the water.

Until early June, the 3 reservoirs will keep leaking.

La fuite majeure ne peut pas être réparée avant début juin


Sur la fuite majeure d’eaux extrêmement radioactives, Tepco a admit que 3 réservoirs au moins sont en train de fuir par leur sol.

Le 10 avril 2013, ils affirment qu’ils vont transvaser l’eau vers les réservoirs d’eau filtrée posés au sol. Actuellement, les réservoirs qui fuient stockent 23 600 tonnes d’eau extrêmement radioactive.

Cependant, ces réservoirs sont toujours en construction. Ils estiment qu’ils seront terminés début juin pour commencer le transvasement.

Les 3 réservoirs vont continuer de fuir jusqu’à début juin.

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.
