Tepco hasn’t been updating English page of their website since 7/5/2013

Measurement readings of groundwater and seawater contamination have been continuously increasing.

(cf, [Groundwater] Cs-134/137 level spiked 90 times much as 3 days before, “27,000,000 Bq/m3 of Cs-134/137, highest ever” [URL])

(cf, [Groundwater] Tepco detected the highest level of all β nuclides of the east side of reactor3 as well [URL 2])

Almost every time they analyze a sample, they detect the highest reading for unverified reason.

However, their English page of the website has not been updated since 7/5/2013.

It’s Handouts at press conference page in English. This is where Tepco is supposed to publish the groundwater contamination data and seawater contamination data etc..

As long as Fukushima Diary checked, this is the longest time that Tepco hasn’t updated the English page.

The mass media blind us by reporting thousands of irrelevant news


Français :

Tepco n’a pas mis à jour les pages anglaises de son site depuis le 5 juillet 2013


Ceci au moment où les relevés des eaux extrêmement radioactives souterraines et marines augmentent de plus en plus.

Voir :
* [Eaux souterraines] Le niveau du césium 134/137 marque un pic 90 fois supérieur à celui de 3 jours avant : 27 millions de Bq/m³ de Cs 134/137, un record absolu
* [eaux souterraines] Tepco relève aussi un record en β nucléides à l’Est du réacteur 3

Pratiquement chaque fois qu’ils analysent un échantillon ils relèvent un nouveau record, sans dire pourquoi.
En outre, leurs pages en anglais n’ont plus été mises à jour depuis le 5 juillet 2013.
Ils les distribuent en anglais durant leurs conférences de presse. C’est là que Tepco est supposée communiquer les données sur la contamination des eaux souterraines et marines, etc..
Sur tout ce que le Fukushima Diary a vérifié, c’est la plus longue période au cours de laquelle Tepco n’a pas mis à jour les pages en anglais.

La grande presse nous aveugle de centaines de nouvelles sans intérêt.

  1. I want to come to Japan to take photos can someone talk to me with information so I can get there!

  2. Fukushima evacuees criticize plans to restart nuclear reactors

    IYO, Ehime — Evacuees from the Fukushima nuclear disaster who now live near nuclear reactors targeted for restart by power companies are uneasy and critical about power companies’ plans to restart nuclear reactors.

    “They can’t say 100 percent that a disaster won’t occur, and they’re trying to take that risk. More than anger, I feel sadness,” says Hiroshi Watanabe, 34, a farmer who evacuated from Minamisoma, Fukushima Prefecture, to Iyo, Ehime Prefecture, with his family. They now live near Ikata Nuclear Power Plant. Shikoku Electric Power Co., which owns the plant, has applied for a safety evaluation to have the No. 3 reactor restarted.

    Back in Fukushima, Watanabe made a living growing rice and vegetables and raising chickens around 12 kilometers from the disaster-hit Fukushima No. 1 Nuclear Power Plant. He used less artificial fertilizers and agricultural chemicals as a farmer, for which he was well-received. He was just in the middle of working with local governments and local farmers on plans to use organic farming to bring economic benefit to the area when the nuclear disaster struck.

    “The blessings of the land, our efforts, everything went to nothing,” he says.

    Together with his wife and two daughters, he evacuated to Ehime Prefecture, where he had spent his university days. They set up a new home that is around 40 kilometers from the Ikata plant. Watanabe borrowed some land and began growing rice and mandarins. His income recovered to about half of what it had been in Fukushima, and his wife had a son.

    However, he carries with him the fear of a nuclear accident happening here as well, and he joined other residents in a December 2011 lawsuit to block the restart of the Ikata plant.

    However, many people in the town of Ikata, which hosts the plant, want it to restart. Mamoru Mizumoto, a 54-year-old restaurant owner, says, “I strongly welcome (the application to restart the reactor.)” Many of his regular patrons are nuclear plant workers. Since the Ikata plant shut all its reactors in January last year, his sales have been down to a third of what they were when the reactors were all running.

    “If not for the reinforcement construction on the No. 3 reactor (that started in spring), I might have had to close shop,” he says.

    Watanabe has some sympathy for such businesses, but says, “It’s too late to act once a disaster has occurred. Until a verdict is reached (in the lawsuit), I want the authorities to hold back on giving a green light to restarting reactors.”

    Another disaster evacuee, Naomi Namekata, 44, is critical of Hokkaido Electric Power Co. (HEPCO)’s filing for permission to run its No. 1 through 3 reactors at the Tomari Nuclear Power Plant.

    “The nuclear disaster has not been taken care of yet, nor is the damage from it under control. And yet, they are acting as if the disaster never happened at all,” she complains.

    In January 2012, almost a year after the disaster, she evacuated from Aizuwakamatsu, Fukushima Prefecture, to Sapporo’s Atsubetsu Ward with her 13-year-old son, moving into a home provided by the Hokkaido Prefectural Government. She soon began working at an association supporting evacuees of the disaster who came to the prefecture. What most pleased her on moving to her new home was “that I can buy food without worrying about radiation.” Nothing had worried her more than the effects of radiation on her son.

    HEPCO stresses the safety measures it has taken at the Tomari plant, but the Fukushima No.1 plant was also supposed to have had safety measures. Namekata says, “It’s wrong to so hastily pursue a restart of the reactors.”

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.
