[300m3 leakage] Leakage might have been occurring since this July / No countermeasures taken

According to Tepco, β exposure dose of the radio reply station worker has been increasing since this July. This means the 300m3 of leakage started over one month ago.

This is stated on the report that Tepco submitted to Nuclear Regulation Authority on 8/27/2013.

From this report, the worker stays at the radio reply station near the leaking tank area for approx. 2 hours.

No significant increase was reported by the patrolling workers, but they could have found the increasing trend from the radio reply station workers sooner.

[Fuite des 300 m³] Elle a du commencer en juillet dernier, sans aucune réaction


Selon Tepco, la dose d’exposition en β du travailleur de la station relais radio augmentait depuis juillet. Ça signifie que la fuite des 300 m³ a commencé il y a plus d’un mois.

C’est affirmé dans le rapport que Tepco a remis à la Nuclear Regulation Authority le 27 août 2013.
Selon ce rapport, un travailleur restait pendant près de 2 heures dans la station de relais radio à proximité de la citerne qui fuyait.
Aucune augmentation significative de radioactivité n’a été notée par les patrouilles de contrôle mais ils auraient pu s’apercevoir plus vite que les travailleurs de la station l’étaient de plus en plus.

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.
