[Reluctant media] Press conference of NRA about sea contamination is nearly empty
On 7/22/2013, Tepco officially admitted the contaminated groundwater is flowing to the sea, and also the seawater comes up to the ground. (cf, [Breaking] Tepco officially admitted contaminated water is leaking to the sea [URL])
One day passed, Nuclear Regulation Authority held a press conference about this issue but media didn’t show up reluctantly.
The press conference room had a lot of vacant seats.
Un jour plus tard la NRA (Nuclear Regulation Authority) a tenu une conférence de presse sur ce problème mais par sa participation la presse s’est montrée réticente.

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.
