Contaminated water crisis Environmental contamination

All β nuclide density in reactor2 groundwater 1,000 times much as before Feb / 10 times much in plant port too

All β nuclide (including Strontium-90) density in groundwater jumped up by 1,000 times since this February, according to Tepco. It is from Tepco’s report about groundwater contamination released on 6/6/2014.

Contaminated water crisis

Highest density of Tritium detected from 25m underground / 3,100,000 Bq/m3

Extremely high density of Tritium was detected from groundwater of deep layer.   Tepco has started building the frozen water underground wall. In order to investigate the groundwater contamination outside

Contaminated water crisis Sea contamination

Tepco discharged 561t of bypass contaminated groundwater to the Pacific

    ↑ They announce the discharged water is safe enough but the staff fully wears protective clothing in front of camera. It’s written Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry

Tepco “Total tritium in Fukushima : 3,400,000,000,000,000 Bq”/JP Gov considers to dilute and discharge to the Pacific

The total volume of Tritium is 3,400,000,000,000,000 Bq in Fukushima plant, from the report that Tepco submitted to METI (Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry) on 4/24/2014.   This is

[Assumption overturned] Bypass water already exceeded the safety limit / Tepco “won’t stop pumping up”

Following up this article.. Tepco started pumping up the bypass water to discharge / Tritium density jumped up to 87% of desired safety level [URL]   The tritium density already

[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

[100m3 overflow] Tritium density in groundwater spiking up 60m east from the overflowed tank

Following up this article.. [100m3 overflow] All β detected 60m east from the tank / Contamination already penetrating to groundwater [URL]   Tritium density is rapidly increasing in groundwater taken

Contaminated water crisis Sea contamination

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

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