Following up this article..[Breaking] Tepco officially admitted contaminated water is leaking to the sea [URL]
In the press conference of 7/26/2013, Tepco stated Tepco’s president Hirose knew the fact that the contaminated groundwater was flowing to the sea 3 days before their official announcement.
According to Tepco, they postponed the announcement for 3 days because they wanted to compile the documents during the weekend.
Tepco is stating they didn’t wait for the election to end one day before the election.
The governmental party LDP is promoting nuclear power. If Tepco announced the contaminated groundwater flowing to the sea before the election, LDP might have lost the seats. (cf, Media “Didn’t you wait for election to end for admitting the sea contamination ?” → Tepco “Obviously No” [URL 2])
Au cours de la conférence de presse du 26 juillet 2013, Tepco avait affirmé que le président de Tepco, M. Hirose, savait 3 jours avant l’annonce officielle que les eaux souterraines extrêmement radioactives s’écoulaient en mer.
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.
