Tepco to discharge underground water via bypass to the sea this April


On 2/28/2013, the current Fukushima plant chief Takahashi stated Tepco is going to discharge underground water to the sea this April at the earliest.

400 tones of underground water is flowing into the plant everyday. To reduce this amount, Tepco is now digging 12 wells in the upstream of the plant. They are going to pump up a certain amount of water from the wells to discharge to the sea.
They didn’t comment they are going to remove radioactive material from the water before discharge.
They are supposed to get the understanding of residents before discharge.

En avril prochain, Tepco va déverser directement dans l’océan les eaux souterraines, via une dérivation 


Le 28 février 2013, le directeur actuel de l’usine de Fukushima, M. Takahashi, affirme que Tepco va déverser les eaux souterraines dans la mer au plus tôt dès avril.

400 tonnes d’eaux souterraines inondent la centrale tous les jours. Pour en réduire la quantité, Tepco est actuellement en train de creuser 12 puits en amont de la centrale. Ils vont pomper une certaine quantité d’eau de ces puits pour la déverser en mer.
Ils ne parlent pas de la décontaminer avant.
Ils sont supposés obtenir la compréhension des habitants avant de la déverser.

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.
