Cesium-134 from sub-drain water of southeast of reactor4 turbine building first time since 10/21/2012
According to Tepco’s report “Nuclides Analysis Result of the Sub-drain Water in the Surroundings of the Central Radioactive Waste Treatment Facility” released on 12/10/2012, Cs-134/137 was measured from sub-drain water of southeast of reactor4 turbine building on 12/9/2012.
Cs-134 : 28,000 Bq/m3 Cs-137 : 37,000 Bq/m3
The last time Cs-137 was measured from sub-drain water of this point was 11/23/2012, but Cs-134 has not been measured since 10/21/2012.Source

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.
