[Concern about the soundness of ground] Fukushima worker “1m deep ground fissure came to us near reactor5,6 on 311”

An anonymous Fukushima worker had an interview with a magazine Gendai business and talked about the plant situation just after 311.

The interview was published on 4/1/2011, but Fukushima Diary found a part of the statements crucial.

According to the worker, “When 311 took place, the ground fissured near reactor5 and 6. It was approximately 1m deep.”

It happened before tsunami.

The former Fukushima worker Happy11311 warned that pumping up ground water may cause Fukushima plant a land subsidence.

The soundness of the ground in Fukushima nuclear plant area is significantly concerning.

[Inquiétudes sur la fiabilité du sol] Un travailleur de Fukushima : Le 11-3, une fissure du sol de 1 m de profondeur venait vers nous près des réacteurs 5 et 6


Un travailleur anonyme de Fukushima a été interviewé par un magazine économique de Gendai et a parlé de la situation de la centrale juste après le 11-3. L’interview a été publié le 1er avril 2011 mais le Fukushima Diary en trouve une partie cruciale.

Selon ce travailleur, “Lorsque le 11-3 est arrivé, le sol s’est  fissuré près des réacteurs 5 et 6. Ça faisait approximativement 1 m de profondeur.”
C’est arrivé avant le tsunami.
L’ancien travaille de Fukushima Happy11311 a prévenu que pomper l’eau du sous-sol peut provoquer une subsidence du terrain. (cf. Actuellement, 400 tonnes d’eaux d’infiltration inondent la centrale nucléaire de Fukushima chaque jour.)
La stabilité du sol de la centrale nucléaire de Fukushima est réellement préoccupante.

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.
