News: Tepco is showering contaminated water

Tepco is planning is sprinkle “low” level contaminated water in the area of the Fukushima plants.

They stocked 17,000 tons of contaminated water in the tanks.

It came from the reactor 5 and 6.

They explain they will not be harmful for the environment because they will purify it with zeolite.

Cesium is supposed to be less than 0.05 Bq/cm3 (50,000,000 Bq/m3), which is the safety limit of bathing beach,though they do not mention other types of the radioactive material such as strontium etc..

Tepco is planning to sprinkle it after receiving permission from the local citizens.

They are trying to stop wood from sparking (ed: what does THAT look like), and also stop dust flying.

Also,they are intending to make the tanks empty by doing it.

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.
