[Breaking] Tepco’s contaminated water storage may reach an impasse this November ~ December

In the press conference of 8/5/2013, Tepco’s spokesman announced the available capacity of contaminated water storage is about 60,000 m3.

He also stated the contaminated water volume increases at 2,500 ~ 3,000 m3 per week.

They commented this is merely a rough estimate, they need to check the details.

However based on this rough estimate, their water storage strategy is going to reach an impasse from 12/16 to 12/22/2013.

If they pump up the rising groundwater and stock it to the same tank, Tepco would have to treat 100 ~ 150 m3 of additional water everyday.

In this case, the tank would be full around the week of 11/11 ~ 11/17/2013.





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

[Breaking] Tepco touchera le fond de l’impasse du stockage des eaux contaminées en novembre ~ décembre


Au cours de la conférence de presse du 5 août 2013, le porte-parole de Tepco a annoncé que leur capacité de stockage des eaux contaminées est d’environ 60 000 m³.

Il a également affirmé que le volume des eaux extrêmement radioactives augmente de 2 500 à 3 000 m³ par semaine.
Ils ont déclaré que c’est une estimation grossière, qu’ils doivent en contrôler le détail.
Cependant, en se basant sur cette estimation grossière, leur stratégie de stockage des eaux va atteindre le fond de l’impasse entre le 16 et le 22 décembre 2013.
S’ils pompent les eaux souterraines qui montent et les stockent dans les mêmes citernes, Tepco va avoir 100 ) 150 m³ supplémentaires à traiter tous les jours.
Dans ce cas, les citernes seront toutes pleines autour de la semaine du 11 au 17 novembre 2013.


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.
