Tepco “Groundwater moves at 10cm/day” → Tepco’s own past data shows “Groundwater moves at 260cm/day”

After 300m3 of leakage, Tritium density was observed to be as double as before in the well downstream of groundwater, which strongly suggests the possibility that the leaked water sank underground and moved by groundwater.

Tepco is denying this possibility based on the assumption that groundwater moves at 10 cm / day (very slow).

However, on their own report published on 8/23/2013, they analyze groundwater moves at 259.2 cm / day, which contradicts their own statement.

In the press conference of 9/6/2013, Tepco’s spokesman stated they need to check the relation of facts.






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

Tepco : “Les eaux souterraines avancent à 10 cm/jour” → Données de Tepco : “Elles avancent à 260 cm/jour”


Après la fuite des 300 m³, on avait constaté dans un forage sur les eaux souterraines en aval que la radioactivité au tritium avait doublé par rapport à avant, ce qui laisse fortement présumer que les eaux de la fuite ont rejoint celles souterraines et se déplacent avec elles.

Tepco dénie cette possibilité en campant sur l’hypothèse que les eaux souterraines se déplacent à 10 cm / jour (très lent).
Or, dans leur propre rapport publié le 23 août 2013, ils concluent qu’elles se déplacent à 259.2 cm / jour, ce qui est en complète contradiction avec leurs propres affirmations.
Au cours de la conférence de presse du 6 septembre 2013, le porte-parole de Tepco a affirmé qu’ils avaient besoin de vérifier le lien entre les faits.

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.
