309,000 Bq/m3 of Cs-134/137 detected from the groundwater, “Cs-134/137 may travel underground too”
Following up this article..[Nightmare] 900,000,000 Bq/m3 of all β detected from groundwater on the east side of reactor2 [URL]
According to Tepco, significantly high level of Cesium-134/137 were detected from the sample that they measured 900,000,000 Bq/m3 of all β nuclide from.
Tepco has been stating Cs-134/137 were absorbed by ground soil, where Tritium was travelling with groundwater. However this measurement suggests Cs-134/137 are also moving underground.
(cf, Tepco “Tritium is travelling underground with groundwater” [URL 2])
The sampling date was 7/5/2013. On the same day, they took a sample from another boring on the east side of reactor2, but Cs-137 level was 1/382, which was 550 Bq/m3. Cs-134 was under detectable level. Cs-134/137 don’t spread evenly.
If Cs-134/137 travel with groundwater like Tritium, there’s a possibility that they are also flowing into the sea.
Selon Tepco, de hauts niveaux de césium 134/137 ont été relevés dans l’échantillon où ils ont mesuré 900 000 000 Bq/m³ de radiations β.
Tepco a affirmé que le Cs 134/137 était retenu par le sol alors que le tritium se déplace dans l’eau. Or, ce relevé suggère que le Cs 134/137 se déplace aussi dans le sous-sol. (cf. Tepco “Le tritium se déplace en sous-sol par les eaux souterraines”)
L’échantillon est du 5 juillet 2013. Ils ont pris un échantillon dans un autre forage à l’Est du réacteur 2 mais le niveau de Cs 137 en était au 1/382 e, soit 550 Bq/m³. Le Cs 134 n’était pas détectable. Les Cs 134/137 ne migrent pas facilement.
Si du Cs 134/137 voyage comme le tritium dans les eaux souterraines, il est probable qu’il finisse en mer.
Ne les laissez pas dominer la vérité juste parce qu’ils sont riches.
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.
