[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 decrease only 10~25% of the groundwater flowing to the plant buildings, but why do they have to take such a risk ? When they finish [...]

Tepco started pumping up the bypass water to discharge / Tritium density jumped up to 87% of desired safety level

↑ The groundwater bypass wells     ↑ The tanks to stock pumped water before discharging     Following up this article.. Tepco NOT to analyze Plutonium or Uranium in bypass water before discharging to the Pacific [URL]   Tepco started pumping up the groundwater from the bypass wells on 4/9/2014. They have already stocked [...]

Tepco plans to discharge pumped groundwater to the sea this coming June

Following up this article.. Fukushima fishery cooperative gave Tepco the approval to discharge bypassed groundwater to the sea [URL]   Tepco is already planning to discharge the pumped groundwater to the Pacific this coming June. On 4/4/2014, Tepco published the report about their plan to increase the contaminated water storage. In this report, they made [...]

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 report, they take seawater samples only at 6 points outside of 30km radius area. Additionally, all those points are just close to the seashore areas, [...]

[Coincidence ?] 3 highest densities of Tritium are “exactly 1,200,000 Bq/m3″ in groundwater bypass

Following up this article.. Fukushima fishery cooperative gave Tepco the approval to discharge bypassed groundwater to the sea [URL]   The 3 highest readings of Tritium density are exactly 1,200,000 Bq/m3 in the bypassed groundwater.   Tepco is starting to prepare to discharge the bypassed groundwater to the sea. The bypassed water will not be [...]

Fukushima fishery cooperative gave Tepco the approval to discharge bypassed groundwater to the sea

Related to this article.. Tepco plans to discharge Tritium to the sea up to 30,000,000 Bq/m3 [URL]   2 major fishery cooperatives gave Tepco the approval to discharge bypassed groundwater to the sea.   400 m3 of new groundwater flows into the plant buildings everyday to turn to be contaminated water. In order to reduce [...]

Groundwater in deep layer possibly traveling between sea and land / Tepco not to investigate it anymore

Following up this article.. Groundwater level found sync with ebb and flow of the sea → Tepco to abandon the measuring point, “Not credible data” [URL]   Groundwater may be already moving between sea and the land freely in the deep layer, and the contamination is flowing to the Pacific.   In the press conference [...]

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 bypass wells. Based on Tepco’s data, Tritium density in March is over 10 times much as September. 2013. Tepco hasn’t made any announcement about the [...]

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 water leaking to the sea, the biological concentration of marine products is one of the most important issues. However, they don’t analyze the samples for [...]

Multiple nuclide removing system can’t filter 4 sorts of radionuclide

Note : Thank you for reading Fukushima Diary. Fukushima Diary is genuinely supported by your donation.Monthly recurring donation is also appreciated.     On 2/5/2014, NRA (Nuclear Regulation Authority) announced the multiple nuclide removing system, ALPS (Advanced Liquid Processing System) can’t filter out 4 kinds of radionuclide.   Tepco and the government of Japan are [...]
