Tepco held an extraordinary press conference for the leakage on 8/20/2013.

From their announcement, one of the tanks (No.5) lost 1/3 of the stocked water, which is approx. 300 tones.

Most of the leaked water has travelled out of the local dam. The total amount of leaking β nuclide is 24,000,000,000,000 Bq. The total amount of leaking Cesium-134 is 13,800,000,000 Bq. The total amount of leaking Cesium-137 is 30,000,000,000.

The leaking part is not identified yet. The leakage is still continuing.

Tepco is pumping up the leaked water but it’s still 4 tones.

[Fuite de citerne] 300m³, 24 000 milliards de Bq de β-nucléides / La fuite se poursuit

Tepco a tenu une conférence de presse extraordinaire ce 20 août 2013 sur cette fuite.

Selon leur communiqué, une des citernes (la n°5) a perdu 1/3 de son contenu, soit environ 300 tonnes.
Le gros de la fuite est sortie par dessus le barrage de sécurité. La quantité totale en β-nucléides est de 24 000 000 000 000 Bq (24 Tera). Le total en césium 134 est de 13 800 000 000 Bq (13,8 milliards). Le total en césium 137 est de 30 000 000 000 (30 milliards).
L’origine de la fuite n’est pas encore déterminée. La fuite se poursuit.
Tepco pompe les eaux qui fuient mais ils n’en ont récupéré que 4 tonnes.

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.
