[Leakage] High level of radiation detected from the next contaminated water storage facility too

Following up this article..[Leakage] Tepco announced additional 47 tones of water to leak to underground [URL]

In the evening of 4/6/2013, Tepco announced the radiation level increased to be as double as before in the water retained outside of the leakage isolation sheet in the next storage facility.

The facility is located in the east of “No.2”, which leaked 120m3 of highly contaminated water.

Tepco states the leaked water from No.2 reached there, but there is no proof to deny the possibility that the new facility is independently leaking as well.

[Fuites] Une haute radioactivité relevée aussi dans une cuve voisine

Dans la soirée du 6 avril 2013, Tepco annonce que la radioactivité de l’eau à l’extérieur des feuilles d’étanchéité de la fosse voisine a doublé.
Celle-ci est située à l’Est de la “N°2”, qui a laissé fuir 120 m³ d’eaux fortement radioactives.
Tepco affirme que l’eau de la cuve N°2 a fui jusque là mais rien ne permet d’affirmer que cette autre cuve ne fuit pas aussi.

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.
