[More leakage] Tepco employee found 8m3 of leakage on filling reactor4 with “filtered” water

On 8/25/2013, Tepco announced their employee found another water leakage in front of the switching station of reactor3&4 around 3PM.

They were filling reactor4 well with filtered water. The leakage occurred on the process.

Probably the leaked water has α & β nuclides unfiltered but the radiation density is not announced. It is not announced why they were filling reactor4 well with water either.

The filtered water tank lost 8m3 of water, which Tepco assumes to be the leaked amount.





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

[Nouvelle fuite] Un employé de Tepco a découvert 8 m³ de fuites d’eaux “filtrées” au remplissage du réacteur 4


Le 25 août 2013 vers 15:00, Tepco déclare que leur employé a découvert une autre fuite en face de la station électrique des réacteurs 3 & 4.

Ils remplissaient le puits du réacteur 4 avec des eaux filtrées. La fuite a eu lieu pendant l’action.
L’eau de la fuite comportait probablement des α & β nucléides non-filtrés mais la radioactivité n’en est pas donnée. Ils ne disent pas non plus pourquoi ils remplissaient le puits du réacteur 4 avec cette eau.
La citerne des eaux filtrées a perdu 8 m³ d’eau, ce que Tepco considère être le volume de la fuite.

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.
