Injected water to reactor1 is leaking to somewhere out of the reactor
According to Tepco’s plant parameter, the water level of reactor1 has been decreasing since August though the volume of water to inject had not been decreased until late November. The injected water is going somewhere out of reactor1.

Selon les paramètres usine de Tepco, le niveau de l’eau du réacteur 1 décroit depuis le mois d’août bien que la quantité injectée n’ait pas diminué depuis fin novembre. L’eau injectée sort par quelque part du réacteur 1.

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.
