[Concealment] J gov excluded Fukushima and Miyagi for tapwater test of Sr-90 in 2011

On 3/28/2013, Fukushima prefectural government announced they measured 0.0028 Bq/L of Strontium-90 from raw water. 0.0014 Bq/L was also measured from tapwater in Fukushima. The samples were taken at 3 locations from 5 ~ 10 in 2012.

They state this is the same level as other prefectures, and lower than past readings. (The historical highest reading was 0.00925 Bq/L in 1979. )

It is important to know how much Sr-90 was contained in tapwater in 2011, which was already consumed.

MEXT (Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology) has supposedly been analyzing tapwater for Strontium-90 yearly since 1972, but they excluded Fukushima and Miyagi for this test in 2011.
In the other disaster area Morioka, they tested the tapwater once.
The reason is not verified.

[Censure] Le gouvernement nippon a exclu en 2011 Fukushima et le Miyagi des analyses du Sr 90 dans l’eau du robinet


Le 28 mars 2013, la préfecture de Fukushima a annoncé qu’ils ont relevé 0,0028 Bq/L de strontium 90 dans l’eau brute. 0,0014 Bq/L ont aussi été relevés dans les eaux du robinet dans Fukushima. Les échantillons avaient été pris en trois endroits entre mai et octobre 2012.

Ils affirment que c’est du même niveau que dans les autres préfectures et inférieur aux relevés précédents. (Le record historique était à 0,00925 Bq/L en 1979.)

Il est important de savoir combien il y avait de Sr-90 dans l’eau du robinet en 2011, laquelle a déjà été consommée.

Le MEXT (Ministère de l’Éducation, de la Culture, des Sports, de la Science et des Technologies) a soi-disant analysé le strontium 90 de l’eau du robinet tous les ans depuis 1972 mais ils ont exclus Fukushima et le Miyagi de ce test en 2011.
Dans un autre région touchée par la catastrophe, à Morioka, ils n’ont analysé l’eau qu’une seule fois.
La raison n’est pas vérifiée.

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.
