12m and 8m long cracks on concrete base of 2 tank areas / Tepco doesn’t mention the possibility of land subsidence

2 of the long cracks were found on the base concrete of the tank areas.

Those cracks are 12m and 8m long, found in 2 tank areas. Those tank areas are next to each other.


The concrete base is to stop leaked contaminated water leak to the ground. Tepco removed the soil around the tank areas for the possible past leakage of contaminated water.

There is a possibility that land subsidence caused the long cracks, but Tepco didn’t mention the possibility and only announced they will cover the concrete base with urethane coating.

Des fissures de 8 et 12 m de long dans le béton du sol de 2 zones de citernes / Tepco n’évoque même pas un affaissement du terrain

2 longues fissures ont été découvertes dans la base en béton de zones de citernes.
Ces fissures font 8 et 12 m de long, elles ont été trouvées dans 2 zones de citernes voisines.

Le sol est bétonné pour empêcher les fuites d’eau extrêmement radioactive de s’infiltrer dans le sol. Tepco a retiré le sol entourant les zones des citernes en précaution sur d’éventuelles fuites antérieures d’eau extrêmement radioactive.
Il est probable qu’un affaissement du terrain ait provoqué ces longues fissures mais Tepco n’en parle même pas, ils annoncent seulement qu’ils vont couvrir le béton avec de l’uréthane.

    Chances are,

    What are the chances that this is reinforced, pre-stressed footed concrete foundation versus a typical TEPCO/Japan cheesy, cheapo bargain-basement ‘piecrust’ slab?

    B) I’LL go with piecrust for $25.

      Mr Bill Duff asks a rhetorical question in an attempt to belittle the quality of TEPCOs concrete.

      • Bill Duff says:

        TEPCO Concrete,

        TEPCO containment concrete is already SCATTERED across more than 1,000 square miles of Honshu Island and the adjacent Pacific Ocean.

        The slipshod, slap-dash, screwups of the now Bankrupt TEPCO are a matter of record. The consequences of these screwups are writ large across the Northern Hemisphere.

        TEPCO’s concrete is PROVEN defective a thousand times over. Not the least are the CRACKS indicated in this article. The TEPCO concrete is shit.

        Niall is a dumbass.

        See the CRACKED Concrete TEPCO photos above.

        Niall is a TOTAL dumbass.

    let’s see how it how it progress.

    • Bill Duff says:


      We ONLY have 35 years of slipshod operations, poor construction, fraudulent reports. TEPCO and Japan have DEMONSTRATED that a Level-7 Chernobyl-style nuclear disaster, was a Best-Case-Scenario. TEPCO has demonstrated what Level-8, Level-9, Level-10, Level-11 and Level-12, Nuclear Disasters would look like. (Should we decide to stick with the present Order of Magnitude disaster scaling.)

      You get 1 Extra Level for international concealment or local non-evacuation. 1 Extra Level per additional reactor. 1 Extra Level for killing an ocean.

      Chernobyl was a Level-7 and Fukushima is a Level~12.

        Mr Bill Duff invents a new scale and places Fukushima on it. Mr Bill Duff hints at global conspiracies and dead oceans.

        • Bill Duff says:

          Actually, this is relaying a 1st person account by an experienced seafarer: The North Pacific Ocean is alledgedly a dead, radioactive, trash dump.

          Life & Style By GREG RAY Oct. 18, 2013, 10 p.m. http www theherald com.au/ (story/1848433/the-ocean-is-broken/?cs=12)

          The ocean is broken

          IT was the silence that made this voyage different from all of those before it. Not the absence of sound, exactly.The wind still whipped the sails and whistled in the rigging. The waves still sloshed against the fibreglass hull. And there were plenty of other noises: muffled thuds and bumps and scrapes as the boat knocked against pieces of debris. What was missing was the cries of the seabirds which, on all previous similar voyages, had surrounded the boat. The birds were missing because the fish were missing.

          Exactly 10 years before, when Newcastle yachtsman Ivan Macfadyen had sailed exactly the same course from Melbourne to Osaka, all he’d had to do to catch a fish from the ocean between Brisbane and Japan was throw out a baited line.

          The next leg of the long voyage was from Osaka to San Francisco and for most of that trip the desolation was tinged with nauseous horror and a degree of fear. “After we left Japan, it felt as if the ocean itself was dead,” Macfadyen said. “We hardly saw any living things. We saw one whale, sort of rolling helplessly on the surface with what looked like a big tumour on its head. It was pretty sickening. “I’ve done a lot of miles on the ocean in my life and I’m used to seeing turtles, dolphins, sharks and big flurries of feeding birds. But this time, for 3000 nautical miles there was nothing alive to be seen.”

          • Niall says:

            Mr Bill Duff posts the same unsubstanciated story in several places.

            • Bill Duff says:


              Perhaps some Scouts should be dispatched, to check on this anecdotal report.

              This Australian Newspaper account correlates, and perhaps confirms, the academic reports of biota die-offs in the North Pacific.

              There is some debate regarding the cause(s). The FACTS of the EVENTS are hardly in dispute.


              Bill Duff

              • Niall says:

                Mr Bill Duff writes the word ‘FACTS’ in upper case, in the hope it sounds more factual. He also posts the same suggestion for an expedition to determine the facts (which he says are hardly in dispute).
