Cs-134/137 density became the highest reading at 4 points inside and outside Fukushima plant port

According to Tepco, Cesium-134/137 density reached the highest reading in 3 locations of Fukushima plant port.

The samples were taken on 8/28/2015. Those sampling locations are the center of Fukushima plant port, water intake of Reactor 1 and 2, where are outside of underground wall.

In the center of Fukushima plant port, Cs-134/137 density (79,000 Bq/m3 in Cs-134/137) became as double as the previous highest reading measured at this point this July.

Additionally, Cs-137 was detected for the first time in the North of the plant, where is outside of the port. The density was 800 Bq/m3.

Radioactivité record en Cs 134/137 en 4 endroits dans et en-dehors du port de la centrale de Fukushima


Selon Tepco, la radioactivité en césium 134/137 atteint des records à 3 endroits dans le port de la centrale de Fukushima.

Les échantillons datent du 28 août 2015. Ces endroits sont au centre du port de la centrale, aux deux prises d’eau des réacteurs 1 et 2 et de l’autre côté du mur souterrain.
au centre du port de la centrale, la radioactivité en Cs 134/137 (79 000 Bq/m³ en Cs-134/137) est au double des précédents relevés de cet endroit de juillet dernier.
De plus, du Cs 137 a pour la première fois été relevé au Nord de la centrale, c’est à dire en dehors du port. Cette radioactivité y est de 800 Bq/m³.


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.
