[Out of control] Tritium leaked from 4 of 7 reservoirs, “1,100,000,000Bq/m3 from reservoir No.1”

About the major leakage of highly contaminated water, radioactive water Tritium was detected outside of 4 of the 7 reservoirs.

According to Tepco, Tritium was detected from the drain hole water (outside of the reservoirs) of reservoir No.1, 2, 4, and 6.

The samples were collected on 4/17/2013. Tepco took 8 days to release the data.

Tepco transfered the leaking water from No.3 to No.6, but this No.6 is also leaking Tritium.

They also detected Tritium from leakage detector hole water of 3 reservoirs, No.1, 2 and 3.

The highest reading was 1,100,000,000 Bq/m3 from the Northeast side of No.1.

[Perte de contrôle] Le tritium fuit de 4 des 7 réservoirs : 1 100 000 000 Bq/m³ au réservoir N°1


Concernant les fuites majeures d’eaux extrêmement radioactives, de l’eau lourde radioactive au tritium a été relevée en dehors de 4 des 7 réservoirs.

Selon Tepco, du tritium a été détecté aux trous de vidange (hors des réservoirs) des réservoir 1, 2, 4, et 6.
Les échantillons datent du 17 avril 2013. Tepco a mis 8 jours pour communiquer les données.
Tepco a transvasé l’eau qui fuit du N°3 dans le N°6 mais le 6 fuit aussi son tritium.
Ils ont aussi relevé du tritium au trou de détection des fuites de 3 réservoirs, les N°1, 2 et 3.
Le record relevé est de 1 100 000 000 Bq/m³ côté nord-est du N°1.

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.
