Over 10 uSv/h was measured at 2 schools in Abiko shi

In Abiko shi, Chiba, 2 schools turned out to be in hot spots.

At one of the schools, they measured 11.3 micro Sv/h in a street gutter on 9/15/2011.

According to the further measurement of city education board, the dust contained 60,768 Bq/ Kg of cesium.

The area should now be a no-go zone BUT the city education board declared that children are safe now, for some reason.

In June, at another school, they measured mud from cleaning the pool and they found 10.1 micro Sv/h.

Even at 1m height from the mud, it was still 3.56 micro Sv/h.

The city education board only covered it with a sheet and no further protection was done for the students.


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.
