Radiation level increasing in leakage detector hole of “nearly empty” reservoir No.1

On 6/10/2013, Fukushima Diary reported “Tepco completed transferring contaminated water but still all β nuclide detected outside of the reservoirs [URL]”

The radiation level (all β) of one of the reservoirs has been increasing since 6/9/2013, when they declared they finished transferring contaminated water.

The sample is leakage detector hole water of reservoir No.1 (North East side). This reservoir should be nearly empty since 5/6/2013.

Currently the water level is only 1.0%,retained water volume is 100m3.

On 6/9/2013, the radiation level was 360,000,000Bq/m3. It increased to be 390,000,000 Bq/m3 on 6/10/2013. It became 450,000,000 Bq/m3 on 6/11/2013.

La radioactivité augmente dans le trou de détection des fuites du réservoir 1 “pratiquement vide”


Le 10 juin 2013, le Fukushima Diary publiait Tepco a terminé le transvasement des eaux extrêmement radioactives mais on détecte toujours tous les β nucléides à l’extérieur des réservoirs

Le niveau de radioactivité (tous β) de l’un des réservoirs augmente depuis le 9 juin 2013 alors qu’ils ont déclaré avoir terminé le transvasement des eaux extrêmement radioactives.
L’échantillon provient du trou de détection des fuites du réservoir 1 (côté nord-est). Ce réservoir devrait être pratiquement vide depuis le 6 mai 2013.
Actuellement, son niveau d’eau est à 1 % seulement, le volume résiduel est de 100 m³.
Le 9 juin 2013, la radioactivité était de 360 000 000 Bq/m³. Il était passé à 390 000 000 Bq/m³ le 10. Il est à 450 000 000 Bq/m³ le 11.

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.
