Yokohama city government made a report to assume the high level of contamination may be from an equipment management company next to the school.
According to Yokohama city government, the company is to wash the filters of air conditioner for buildings or factories in Kanagawa prefecture. The water is assumed to flow into the gully.
Having this report, Yokohama city government required the company not to let the water flow into the gully and decided to shelter the contaminated soil in a concrete case.
However, the equipement management company states, the filters were from away from Fukushima, and they haven’t washed anything there since last November. Additionally, they measured each filter with dose meter.
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.
