Former Fukushima worker, “Chemical injection doesn’t solve groundwater contamination problem”
Having measured extremely high level of Tritium from groundwater, Tepco is making additional borings for more detailed analysis.
(cf, 600,000,000 Bq/m3 of Tritium from groundwater, Tepco doesn’t analyze the groundwater for Strontium-90 [URL])
On 7/1/2013, Fukushima Diary reported “Tepco to build over 200 underground structures of water glass to 13 m deep underground to stop Tritium spreading [URL 2]”
About the countermeasure of Tepco, the former Fukushima worker Happy11311 commented on Twitter that it is not the fundamental resolution.
It’s natural that the higher level of radiation is detected near the sea. It’s meaningless to keep on sampling. I also think it’s not the fundamental resolution to inject chemical material into the ground. ・・・
Il est naturel que l’on relève de hauts niveaux de radioactivité près de la mer. Il est inutile d’en continuer l’échantillonnage. Je pense aussi que ce n’est pas une résolution fondamentale que d’injecter des produits chimiques dans le sol. ・・・
海側を掘れば掘るほど、色んな場所から高い汚染が出てくるのは当たり前の事で、いつまでサンプリングばっかりやるんだろ？それに薬液注入で固めたって、根本的解決にはならないと思うんだけど…。 ＜福島第１原発＞別の井戸で９０万ベクレル検出 http://t.co/UEx5B2edll

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.
