Tepco “Rising groundwater might have started spreading to neighboring areas 1 week ago”
The contaminated groundwater level is rising on the seaside of reactor2 due to the impervious wall.
In the press conference of 8/9/2013, Tepco admitted the rising water might have already started traveling to the neighboring areas one week ago.
The surrounding areas are the seaside of reactor1 and 3.
According to Tepco’s data, the groundwater level on the seaside of reactor2 stopped rising on 8/3/2013. Since then, the water level on the seaside of reactor3 has been in the sync with the seaside of reactor2 regardless of the amount of rainfall (The green circled below).
Also, the Tritium density on the seaside of reactor1 is increasing.
(cf, Tritium density jumped up 150% in 2 days on the seaside of reactor1 [URL])
The impervious wall is possibly making the situation more complicated.
Le niveau des eaux souterraines monte sur le côté mer du réacteur 2 à cause du mur étanche.
Au cours de la conférence de presse du 9 août 2013, Tepco a reconnu que la montée des eaux souterraines a du se propager aux zones voisines il y a une semaine.
Les zones voisines sont celles des réacteurs 1 et 3.
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.
