Tritium density over doubled in groundwater of south side of the 300m3 leaked tank
Following up this article..[Concealment] Tepco decreased the accuracy of groundwater analysis around the leaked tank [URL]
Regardless of the decreased accuracy of analysis, Tepco measured high level of Tritium in the groundwater beside the leaked tank.
The location is one tank over the tank that experienced 300m3 of leakage. It’s in the south side, where is supposed to be the opposite direction from where the leaked water flowed.
Until 9/5/2013, the tritium density was lower than 120,000 Bq/m3, which Tepco sets to be the lowest detectable level for unpublished reason. However, it increased to be 190,000 Bq/m3 on 9/6/2013. It reached 300,000 Bq/m3 on 9/7/2013.
The leaked water is highly likely to have touched the groundwater already.
En dépit de la diminution de la précision des analyses, Tepco a relevé une forte radioactivité en tritium dans les eaux souterraines à proximité de la citerne qui a fuit.
C’est à une citerne de distance de celle qui a laissé échapper les 300 m³. C’est au sud, c’est à dire dans la direction opposée à celle que ces eaux sont supposées avoir prise en s’écoulant.
La radioactivité en tritium était inférieure à 120 000 Bq/m³ jusqu’au 5 septembre 2013, ce que Tepco établit, sans le justifier formellement, comme la plus petite concentration détectable. Cependant, elle est passée à 190 000 Bq/m³ le 6 septembre et a atteint 300 000 Bq/m³ ce 7 septembre 2013. La fuite a certainement déjà rejoint les eaux souterraines.

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.
