News: JP Gov will stock radioactive waste in river head area

Forestry Agency will lend the national forests to local government as disposal area of radioactive waste, where is source of tap water.

Having decontamination be a huge business chance, they are making heaps of radioactive sludge.

Including the massive amount of contaminated hay, sewage sludge,and radioactive incineration ash, local governments are looking for a place to stock them “temporarily.”

To solve the problem,forestry agency has decided to lend the national forests for the place to stock.

This is to keep the radioactive waste away from the city area, but it’s near the source of tap water.

They are just to cover the radioactive waste with concrete and waterproof sheet.

Because Japan is a country of water / rain, it is highly likely that radiation leaks into the river.

As it’s said in this article, even within Fukushima, they made 100 million cubic meters of contaminated soil in the first 6 months.

Now it’s becoming the matter that if we die of radioactive tap water sooner or national forests get full of radioactive waste sooner.


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.
