JP Gov giving up decontamination, “Manage exposure dose at the risk of the residents themselves”

Japanese government was preparing to lift the evacuation order in Miyakoji area, Tamura city Fukushima prefecture.

They have been decontaminating the area to make the atmospheric dose lower than 0.23 μSv/h, but it couldn’t be lower than 0.32 ~ 0.54 μSv/h.

On 6/23/2013, they held a briefing for the former residents.

In this session, Japanese government stated they don’t have the budget to decontaminate again. Instead, they are going to give new advanced dosimeter for the residents who wish to have. They require the residents to manage exposure dose by themselves.

They plan to let the former residents come back to the area.

The briefing was recorded, but Ministry of the Environment denied their own comment for some reason.



Don’t let them dominate the truth just because they have money.

Le gouvernement abandonne la décontamination : “Les habitants devront gérer leur exposition eux-mêmes”


Le gouvernement japonais se prépare à lever l’ordre d’évacuation de la région de Miyakoji et de la ville de Tamura dans la préfecture de Fukushima.

Ils ont décontaminé la zone en voulant que la dose ambiante devienne inférieure à 0,23 μSv/h mais ils n’ont pas pu descendre en-dessous de 0,32 ~ 0.54 μSv/h.
Le 23 juin 2013, avec les anciens habitants ils ont fait une réunion au cours de laquelle le gouvernement japonais a affirmé qu’il n’avait pas de budget pour refaire des décontaminations. A la place, ils fourniront des dosimètres évolués et récents aux habitants qui en veulent. Ils exigent que les habitants gèrent eux-mêmes leur exposition.
Ils prévoient d’autoriser le retour dans la zone des anciens habitants.
La réunion a été enregistrée mais le ministère de l’Environnement nie ses propres déclarations.

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.
