Tepco to discharge ground water to the sea if it’s under 1,000 Bq/m3


Tepco is going to discharge the pumped ground water to the sea if it’s lower than 1,000 Bq/m3.
There is no explanation about the nuclide.

Tepco is trying to pump up the ground water to reduce the amount to flow into the plant.
As Fukushima Diary reported on 3/1/2013, they are to discharge it to the sea without purification.

Tepco states they won’t pump up nor discharge it unless they obtain the understanding from the stakeholders.

Tepco va déverser le pompage des eaux d’infiltration en mer si elles sont à moins de 1 000 Bq/m³.
Il n’y a aucune explication sur les nucléides.

Tepco essaye de pomper l’eau d’infiltration pour réduire la quantité qui en entre dans la centrale.
Comme le Fukushima Diary l’a rapporté le 1er mars 2013, ils vont les déverser en mer sans purification.

Tepco affirme qu’ils ne vont pas la pomper ni en déverser tant qu’ils n’auront pas obtenu la compréhension des parties prenantes.

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.
