[Breaking] Tepco to try to start pumping up groundwater from this weekend / Storage facility undecided

In the press conference of 8/5/2013, Tepco announced they are trying to start pumping up the rising groundwater from this weekend.

However, the storage facility is not decided yet.

It is assumed Tepco will need to pump up over 100 tones of additional groundwater from now. It is not clear if Tepco can afford the storage facility.




Truth is not truth because everyone believes in it. It’s the truth because it’s consistent and can’t be rebutted.

[Breaking] Tepco va essayer de commencer à pomper les eaux souterraines dès ce week-end / L’espace de stockage n’est pas décidé


Au cours de la conférence de presse du 5 août 2013, Tepco annonce qu’ils sont en train d’essayer de commencer le pompage des eaux souterraines qui montent dès ce week-end.

L’endroit de leur stockage n’est cependant pas encore décidé.
On suppose que Tepco va devoir pomper plus de 100 tonnes supplémentaires d’eaux souterraines à partir de maintenant. Il n’est pas précisé clairement si Tepco peut disposer de l’espace de stockage nécessaire.


Ce n’est pas la vérité parce que tout le monde y croit. C’est la vérité parce que c’est cohérent et irréfutable.

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.
