Tepco is becoming entirely incapable to control the contaminated water system.

On 10/2/2013, Tepco announced they found “rainwater” retained in the local dam of a tank area overflowing due to the Typhoon.

They estimate 23 m3 of “rainwater” overflowed at the most. All β nuclide level (including Strontium-90) was 15,000 Bq/m3. Cs-134/137 density was lower than the detectable level according to Tepco.


After found the overflow, they found “rainwater” reaching the top of another dam as well. Tepco stated “they can’t deny the possibility the water overflowed the dam”.

Two tank areas had “rainwater” overflow only in a day.

Tepco devient totalement incapable de contrôler son système de gestion des eaux extrêmement radioactives.

Le 2 octobre 2013, Tepco annonce qu’ils ont découvert de “l’eau de pluie” retenue par un endiguement d’une zone de citernes en train de déborder à cause du typhon.
Ils estiment qu’au pire le débordement a fait 23 m³ “d’eau de pluie”. La radioactivité β (dont le strontium 90) était de 15 000 Bq/m³. La radioactivité en césium 134/137 était, selon Tepco, en-dessous du minimum détectable.

Après la découverte de ce débordement; ils ont trouvé que “l’eau de pluie” atteignait aussi le haut d’un autre endiguement. Tepco a affirmer qu’ils “ne peuvent nier la possibilité que l’eau ait débordé de cette endiguement.”
Les “eaux de pluie” ont débordé de deux zones de citernes en un seul jour.

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.
