Tepco “It was 0.3 ~ 3L that leaked from reservoir No.3”

About the major leakage of highly contaminated water from the reservoirs, Tepco admitted the reservoir No.3 is also leaking.

(cf, [Out of control] Tepco admitted another contaminated water reservoir leaking as well [URL])

Tepco announced the volume of water to have leaked from No. 3 was 0.3 ~ 3 L.

They state the contaminated water leaked because the leakage isolation sheet was stretched to make a space with the detection drain because of the water pressure.

Tepco affirme qu’entre 0,3 et 3 litres ont fuit du réservoir N°3


Sur la fuite majeure du réservoir d’eau hautement radioactive, Tepco a admit que le réservoir N°3 fuyait aussi. (cf. [Perte de contrôle] Tepco admet qu’une autre cuve d’eaux contaminées fuit aussi)

Tepco a déclaré que le volume d’eau ayant fuit du N°3 est entre 0,3 et 3 L.
Ils affirment que l’eau contaminée a fuit parce que la feuille d’étanchéité a été distendue au niveau du tuyau de vidange pour les détections à cause de la pression de l’eau.

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.
