Cs-137 in Sub-drain water marked the highest reading in these 2 months

According to Tepco’s report of “Nuclides Analysis Result of the Sub-drain Water in the Surroundings of the Central Radioactive Waste Treatment Facility”, 3.1×10^5 Bq/m3 of Cs-137 was measured from the sub-drain water of West Side of the Incineration Workshop Building on 12/21/2012. This is the highest reading since 10/13/2012.

Also, 1.8×10^5 Bq/m3 of Cs-134 was measured from the same location, which is the highest reading since 10/13/2012 too.

Le Cs-137 dans l’eau d’un caniveau franchit le record de ces 2 derniers mois

Selon le rapport de Tepco “Analyse des Nucléides de l’eau des écoulements drainées autour de la centrale de traitement des déchets”, 310 000 Bq/m³ de Cs-137 ont été relevés dans la canalisation du côté Ouest du bâtiment de l’incinérateur, le 21 décembre 2012. C’est le plus haut relevé depuis le 13 octobre 2012.

180 000 Bq/m³ de Cs-134 ont aussi été relevés au même endroit, ce qui est aussi le plus haut depuis ce même 13 octobre.

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.
