Tepco to pump up accumulating groundwater by the end of August / Tepco “Groundwater may overflow”

Following up this article..[Column] Tepco literally “swamped” in sea contamination prevention [URL]

On 8/2/2013, Tepco reported Nuclear Regulation Authority that they are planning to pump up the increasing groundwater.

They represented the sense of impending crisis.

Due to the impervious wall, groundwater is increasing unexpectedly quickly. In order to control the increasing water volume, Tepco plans to install the water gathering basin on the east side of reactor2 by the end of August. They will start pumping up water after the installation.

Contaminated water management committee of Nuclear Regulation Authority stated they may need to take some prevention in 3~4 weeks.

However, it hasn’t been decided how to treat the pumped water.






Truth is not truth because everyone believes in it. It’s the truth because it’s consistent and can’t be rebutted.

Le 2 août 2013, Tepco rapporte à la Nuclear Regulation Authority qu’ils prévoient de pomper les eaux souterraines qui montent.

Ils se sont montrés en état de crise imminente.
Le niveau des eaux souterraines monte avec une rapidité imprévue à cause du mur étanche. Pour contrôler cette augmentation du volume d’eau, Tepco prévoie d’installer un bassin de collecte de l’eau à l’Est du réacteur2 pour la fin août. Ils vont commencer les pompages dès que c’est terminé.
La commission de gestion des eaux extrêmement radioactives de la Nuclear Regulation Authority affirme qu’ils auront besoin de prendre des mesures de prévention d’ici 3 ou 4 semaines.
Ils n’ont cependant pas encor décidé comment ils allaient traiter les eaux pompées.


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.
