On 6/5/2012, the board of education of Koriyama city announced all of the elementary schools and junior high schools are going to have swimming class this year. The pools are outside.
They state the atmospheric dose of poolside is the same level as playground after decontamination, but the atmospheric dose of playground is not published.
36 of 86 schools finished decontamination supposedly. The pool water is supposed to contain less than 10Bq/L of cesium but no information is given about how much cesium is accumulated as time passes.
Mr. Suzuki, a freelance journalist tweeted like this below.
The managing staff of Koriyama ciry board of education stated 80% of the parents want schools to have swimming class but it was actually only 80% of managers of PTA (Parent‐Teacher Association) and principals. Mothers are upset, ” No even questionnaire, we were not asked anything.”
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.
