[Video column] Fukushima Diary talks “Tepco washing off Plutonium to the Pacific, huge risk for the least effect”

Tepco plans to start discharging the bypass water to the Pacific from this coming June, but alpha nuclides including Plutonium-238/239/240 and Uranium-235/238 will not be tested nor filtered. It would

Tepco doesn’t analyze the Pacific seawater in the east of Fukushima plant outside of 30km radius area

  Tepco doesn’t take seawater samples in the east of Fukushima plant from Tepco’s own report.   On 4/1/2014, Tepco released the sampling plan of the Pacific seawater. From this

Tritium density rose up over 10 times much within 6 months about 100m above the groundwater bypass

Tritium density in groundwater has been increasing upstream of groundwater bypass wells. Tritium cannot be filtered to discharge to the sea.   The location is approx. 100m from the groundwater

Why doesn’t Tepco analyze fishery products for Strontium-90 ? → Tepco “Because it’s how it’s supposed to be”

      The reason why Tepco doesn’t analyze fishery products for Strontium-90 is only because it’s the rule. Tepco stated in the press conference of 2/19/2014. Having highly contaminated
