9,500,000 Bq/m3 of all β near Reactor1 turbine building / Not direct leakage of coolant water ?

According to Tepco, significantly high level of all β nuclides (including Strontium-90) was measured from the groundwater nearby reactor1 turbine building. The sampling location is in the seaside of the building.
The reading was 9,500,000 Bq/m3. However, Tepco still hasn’t admitted the possibility that the coolant water is directly leaking from reactor1 turbine building and this high level of contamination is due to the water to have touched the molten fuel.
Selon Tepco, une radioactivité significativement élevée en β-nucléides (dont le strontium-90) a été relevée dans les eaux souterraines proches du bâtiment de la turbine du réacteur 1. L’échantillon a été pris sur le côté mer du bâtiment.
Le relevé est de 9 500 000 Bq/m³. Néanmoins, Tepco n’a toujours pas reconnu qu’il est possible d’avoir une fuite directe des eaux de refroidissement depuis le bâtiment de la turbine du réacteur 1 et que cette radioactivité intense est provoquée par le contact des eaux sur le corium (= combustible fondu).
Vous pouvez ignorer la vérité mais la vérité ne vous ignorera pas.
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.
