97,000,000 Bq/m3 of Tritium detected in groundwater of 300m3 leakage tank area / 1.5 times much as one day before

On 9/12/2013 (yesterday), Fukushima Diary reported they detected 64,000,000 Bq/m3 of Tritium in the groundwater taken beside the tank that experienced 300 m3 leakage.

Though it has the least media coverage from outside of Japan, the situation is becoming serious increasingly.

According to Tepco, 97,000,000 Bq/m3 of Tritium was detected in the groundwater from the same sampling location.

This means the Tritium density increased to be 1.5 times much only within a day.

In the press conference of 9/11/2013, Tepco’s vice president stated Tritium reached the groundwater certainly.

(cf, Tepco’s vice president “Tritium got into groundwater certainly” [URL 2])

It is unpredictable that how much more the contamination will spread.

97 millions de Bq/m³ de tritium dans les eaux souterraines de la fuite des 300 m³ : montée de 150% en 24 heures


Le 12 septembre 2013 (hier), le Fukushima Diary rapportait qu’ils relevaient 64 000 000 Bq/m³ de tritium dans les eaux souterraines prises à côté de la citerne qui avait laissé fuir les 300 m³. (cf. 64 millions de Bq/m³ de tritium dans les eaux souterraines de la citerne de la fuite / 15 fois plus en 2 jours)

Bien que ce soit couvert par la presse non-japonaise, la situation est en train de dégénérer gravement.
Selon Tepco, 97 000 000 Bq/m³ de tritium ont été relevés dans les eaux souterraines au même endroit d’échantillonnage.
Ça signifie que la radioactivité en tritium s’est multipliée par 1.5 en seulement un jour.

Au cours de la conférence de presse du 11 septembre 2013, le vice-président de Tepco a affirmé que le tritium avait certainement rejoint les eaux souterraines. (cf. Le vice président de Tepco : “Le tritium est certainement parti dans les eaux souterraines”])
On ne peut pas prédire combien d’eau extrêmement radioactive va encore se répandre.


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.
