[Severely exposed workers] Tepco “Sediment of feed tank for the mist may be the contamination source”

Following up this article..Exposed workers released after “wiping off the contamination” / 19 Bq/cm2 → 6.9 Bq/cm2 [URL]

On 8/16/2013, Tepco reported the contamination source might be the sediment of the feed tank of the mist generating machine.

They are going to investigate if there is any contaminated sediment in the facility.

According to Tepco, they haven’t found any contamination source in the filtration plant or the outside of the mist generating machine so far.

Tepco states the dust monitoring post didn’t alarm by an error. There must have been contamination but the source hasn’t been verified.





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

Le 16 août 2013, Tepco rapporte que la source de la contamination pourrait être dans les sédiments de la citerne d’alimentation en eau du brumisateur. Ils vont rechercher si ces sédiments sont radioactifs.

Selon Tepco, pour l’instant ils n’ont trouvé aucune source de contamination ni dans la station de filtration, ni dans la machine elle-même. Tepco affirme que l’alarme de la borne de surveillance des poussières ne s’est jamais déclenchée par erreur. Il y a forcément eu une contamination mais sa source n’est pas établie.

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.
