Fisheries station “Contaminated groundwater may well up a few Km offshore Fukushima”
In the press conference of 7/26/2013, TV Asahi announcer Matsui gave Tepco a query about the sea contamination. (13:09)
In the query, he stated fisheries experimental station concerns about the transit of the contaminated groundwater. According to the station, fresh water wells up in a few hundreds Km offshore Fukushima. Groundwater travels from the land to those wells. Now that the groundwater is contaminated, it may well up offshore.
If that is true, it would be meaningless to conduct radiation measurement only in Fukushima plant port.
Mr. Matsui gave the same query to Tepco two weeks ago too. However, Tepco answered they haven’t even consulted the fisheries experimental station, and they don’t even have a specific plant to consult them in the future.
Pendant la conférence de presse du 26 juillet 2013, Matsui, un présentateur de Asahi TV a posé une question à Tepco sur la contamination de la mer. (13:09)
Dans cette question, il parle des inquiétudes d’une station expérimentale de pêche concernant le trajet des eaux extrêmement radioactives. Selon cette station, les eaux douces resurgissent de puits en mer et remontent à quelques centaines de kms au large de Fukushima. Les eaux souterraines vont de la terre à ces puits. Maintenant que ces eaux souterraines sont extrêmement radioactives, elles peuvent ressurgir au large.
Si ceci est vrai, faire des relevés de radioactivité uniquement dans les eaux du port de la centrale n’aura aucune signification.
M. Matsui avait déjà posé cette même question il y a deux semaines. Tepco a répondu qu’ils n’avaient pas consulté la station expérimentale de pêche et qu’ils n’avaient pas de plan spécifique pour les consulter à l’avenir.
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.
