[Nightmare] 900,000,000 Bq/m3 of all β detected from groundwater on the east side of reactor2

Having measured the significantly high level of Tritium from groundwater on the east side of reactor2, Tepco made additonal borings and is investigating furthermore.

On 7/3/2013, Fukushima Diary reported they detected 4,300,000 Bq/m3 of all β at 6m from the sea.

(cf, All β nuclide level increased to be 4,300,000 Bq/m3 at 6m from the sea, “1.4 times much as 3 days ago” [URL])

On 7/5/2013, they measured 900,000,000 Bq/m3 of all β from the groundwater. The sample was collected from another boring next to the one where they detected 4,300,000 Bq/m3.

All β nuclides contain Strontium-90 but the specific readins is not announced. This is the worst reading of groundwater contamination that Tepco has ever published.





Don’t let them dominate the truth just because they have money.

[Cauchemar] Neuf cent millions de Bq/m³ en rayons β dans les eaux souterraines à l’Est du réacteur 2


Ayant relevé de graves niveaux de tritium dans les eaux souterraines à l’est du réacteur 2, Tepco a effectué de nouveaux forages et continue de chercher.

Le 3 juillet 2013, le Fukushima Diary publiait qu’ils relevaient  4 300 000 Bq/m³ de radiations β à 6 m de la mer. (cf. Le niveau de tous les β nucléides est passé à 4 300 000 Bq/m³ à 6 m de la mer, “multiplié par 1,4 en 3 jours”)
Le 5 juillet 2013, ils relèvent 900 000 000 Bq/m³ (neuf cent millions) en rayonnement β dans les eaux souterraines. L’échantillon provient d’un forage voisin de celui où ils avaient relevé 4 300 000 Bq/m³.
Les β nucléides contiennent du strontium 90 mais ils n’en donnent aucun chiffre. C’est le pire relevé que Tepco ait jamais publié sur la contamination des eaux souterraines.



Ne les laissez pas dominer la vérité juste parce qu’ils sont riches.

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.
