[Message ?] Mysterious number “45,000 Bq/L” mis-marked under groundwater Sr-90 reading under analysis for weeks

On 8/7/2013, Tepco published the nuclide analysis report of groundwater.

On this report, Tepco “mis-marked” the number 45,000 Bq/L below the result of Boring No.1-2.

Boring No.1-2 is where they detected 900,000,000 Bq/m3 of all β (Strontium-90 etc) twice, which is the highest reading among all the borings. They also measured 380,000,000 Bq/m3 of Tritium from this boring.

The analysis result of Strontium-90 has been “Under analysis” for weeks. The “mis-marked” 45,000 Bq/L was found right under the “Under analysis” comment. (Red circled below)

On the left, there is also another “Mis-mark” of 4/26. These “mis-marks” are both of Japanese and English reports.

Truth is not truth because everyone believes in it. It’s the truth because it’s consistent and can’t be rebutted.

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.
