Groundwater level reached 25cm to the surface of the ground on the seaside of reactor2 / No rainfall

In order to stop the sea contamination, Tepco built the impervious wall on the coastal line of the seaside of reactor2.

However because it caused the groundwater level to be increasing, Tepco installed the pumps in this area.

Having been pumping up the groundwater, the groundwater level at one of the borings has been jumping up since 8/20/2013 for some reason. There was no rainfall in this term according to Tepco.

The highest level was recorded on 8/24/2013. This time, the groundwater level came up to 25cm to the surface of the ground.

You can ignore the truth but the truth won’t ignore you.

Sur le côté mer du réacteur 2 le niveau des eaux souterraines est à 25 cm de la surface / il n’a pas plu


Tepco a construit le mur souterrain étanche le long du rivage jouxtant le réacteur 2 pour arrêter la contamination de la mer.
Puis, Tepco a installé des pompes dans cette zone parce que le mur provoque une montée des eaux souterraines.

Pendant qu’ils la pompent, le niveau des eaux souterraines monte dans l’un des forages depuis le 20 août 2013.
Selon Tepco, il n’y a pas eu de pluie durant tout ce temps.

Le record date du 24 août 2013.
Cette fois-là, le niveau des eaux souterraines est monté jusqu’à 25 cm de la surface du sol.

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.
