Tepco transferring back contaminated water to the crippled reservoir No.2 again, Tepco “diluting”

On 6/21/2013, Fukushima Diary reported “Tepco stocking contaminated water in the leaking reservoir No.1 again, Tepco “diluting” [URL]”

According to Tepco, they are transferring contaminated water to another crippled reservoir, No.2 as well.

Tepco completed emptying reservoir No.2 by 4/22/2013, but all β has been detected from the leakage detection hole water.

From the leakage detection hole water of North East side taken on 6/26/2013, 730,000,000 Bq/m3 of all β nuclides were measured from.

The newly “reserved” water is from the desalination system, which also leaked 26 Giga Bq/m3 of all β nuclides on 6/21/2013.

(cf, New leakage from desalination system, 26 giga Bq/m3 of all β, Tepco, “250L, no overflow from the warehouse” [URL 2])

They already transferred 40m3 of the contaminated water to reservoir No.2 on 6/27/2013 in order to “dilute” the retained water.

Into another crippled reservoir No.1, Tepco also transferred 40m3 of contaminated water in order to “dilute” as well on 6/26/2013.

They removed the new contaminated water on 6/27/2013, but the removal volume was 33m3. 7m3 of the newly reserved water is remained in the reservoir No.1.








I see no hope in the old system of Japan.

Tepco transvase encore des eaux extrêmement radioactives dans le réservoir percé N°2. “pour diluer”


Le 21 juin 2013, le Fukushima Diary publiait Tepco recommence son stockage d’eaux extrêmement radioactives dans le réservoir percé n°1, Tepco : ” pour diluer”

Selon Tepco, Ils transvasent aussi les eaux extrêmement radioactives dans un autre réservoir percé, le N°2.

Tepco a fini de vider le réservoir No.2 le 22 avril 2013 mais on relève toujours des β dans le trou de détection.
Dans le trou de détection du Nord-Est, le 26 juin 2013, ils ont relevé 730 000 000 Bq/m³ de β-nucléides.
Les nouvelles eaux “remisées” proviennent du système de désalinisation qui a également fuit des β-nucléides le 21 juin 2013, à 26 milliards de Bq/m³. (cf. Nouvelle fuite du système de désalinisation : 26 milliards de Bq/m³ de β-nucléides. Tepco : “260 L, ne sont pas sortis du hangar”)
Ils ont déjà transvasé 40 m³ des eaux extrêmement radioactives dans le réservoir N°2 le 27 juin 2013 pour “diluer” les eaux résiduelles.

Le 26 juin 2013, dDans un autre réservoir percé, le N°1, Tepco avait aussi transvasé 40 m³ d’eaux extrêmement radioactives, toujours pour “diluer”.
Ils avaient retiré ces eaux additionnelles le 27 juin 2013 mais seulement sur un volume de 33 m³. Il reste 7 m³ de ces eaux ajoutées dans le réservoir N°1.


Aucun de ces faits n’est rapporté par la presse.

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.
