In the regular press briefing of 9/24/2013, the spokesman of Nuclear Regulation Authority commented they don’t know what the inspectors actually check about the contaminated water tanks in Fukushima nuclear plant.


It was the answer for the inquiry of the press.

Nuclear Regulation Authority is to supervise Tepco’s patrol.



You can ignore the truth but the truth won’t ignore you.

Le porte-parole de la NRA : “Nous ne savons pas en fait ce que nos inspecteurs contrôlent sur les citernes qui fuient”


NRA spokesman "We don't know what our inspectors actually check about the contaminated water tanks"

Le 20 septembre 2013, Tepco avait déclaré avoir, dans la citerne qui a laissé fuir les 300 m³, trouvé 5 boulons desserrés et des joints en grande partie distendus. (cf. La citerne qui a fuit les 300 m³ a 5 boulons desserrés, des joints d’étanchéité largement distendus)

Au cours de leur conférence de presse régulière du 24 septembre 2013, le porte-parole de la Nuclear Regulation Authority a déclaré qu’ils ne savent pas exactement ce que leurs inspecteurs contrôlent sur les citernes d’eaux extrêmement radioactive dans la centrale nucléaire de Fukushima.

C’était en réponse à une question de la presse.
La Nuclear Regulation Authority est là pour superviser les patrouilles de Tepco.

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.
