Contaminated water crisis

One more tank leakage found / Tepco “No data for not bringing the proper survey meter”

Since they found the 300m3 leakage, Tepco has been investigating the leakage of other tanks. On 9/2/2013, they found one more leakage in the South side of the 300m3 leakage

Contaminated water crisis Sea contamination

[Backward flow of contaminated groundwater ?] High level of radiation detected in drain upstream of any tanks

Contaminated water tanks are leaking, and the leaked water flowed to the drains, which are connected to the Pacific. However on 9/2/2013, high level of all β nuclides (including Strontium-90)

Contaminated water crisis Sea contamination

All β level doubled up in pumped water of reactor2 seaside

On the seaside of reactor2, all β nuclide (including Strontium-90) increased nearly as double as two weeks ago. In order to stop the sea contamination, Tepco built the impervious wall
