[Underground penetration] All β detected from 2 more observation holes of reservoir No.2, “Max as 380,000 Bq/m3”

On 5/21/2013, Fukushima Diary reported, “[Major leakage] All β nuclide detected in 1.5 m from reservoir No.2 [URL]”

According to Tepco, all β was detected from 2 more observation holes. In total, Tritium was detected from 3 holes at North East corner of reservoir No.2.

Samples were taken on 5/22/2013. The highest reading was 380,000 Bq/m3. The leaking contaminated water is possibly penetrating underground further.

[Infiltrations souterraines] On détecte des β dans 2 trous d’observation de plus du réservoir 2 : Max à 380 000 Bq/m³


Le 21 mai 2013, le Fukushima Diary publiait [Fuites majeures] Les β nucléides détectés à 1,5 m du réservoir N°2

Selon Tepco, les β sont relevés dans 2 trous d’observation de plus. Au final, le tritium est détecté dans 3 trous du coin Nord-Est du réservoir N°2.

Les échantillons sont du 22 mai 2013. Le record en est de 380 000 Bq/m³. L’eau extrêmement radioactive des fuites est sans doute en train de s’infiltrer plus loin.

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.
