Tepco started isolating the seaside of reactor2 by underground walls
Tepco started building the underground wall to surround the seaside of reactor2.
The groundwater level is rising due to the impervious wall and Tepco is trying to pump up the water.
Since 8/13/2013, Tepco has been building additional underground wall on the land side of the area, where is between the reactor2 turbine building and the “flooding area”. This area will be completely isolated.
By the morning of 8/16/2013, Tepco has built 4 underground structures. They are going to build 494 more underground structures to make it function as a wall.
Because the wall would stop groundwater closer to the turbine building, contaminated groundwater may be retained to pressure the turbine building.
Tepco a commencé la construction d’un mur étanche pour encercler le côté mer du réacteur 2.
Les eaux souterraines montent à cause du mur souterrain étanche et Tepco essaye de les pomper.
Tepco construit un autre mur étanche souterrain sur le côté terre de la zone qui se trouve entre le bâtiment de la turbine du réacteur 2 et la “zone inondée” depuis le 13 août 2013. Cette zone va être totalement fermée.
Au matin du 16 août 2013, Tepco avait posé 4 structures souterraines. Ils vont en poser 494 de plus pour constituer un mur. Les eaux souterraines extrêmement radioactives vont faire pression sur le bâtiment de la turbine parce que le mur va les bloquer très près de lui.
Vous pouvez ignorer la vérité mais la vérité ne vous ignorera pas.
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.
