[Absolutely not direct leakage] 20,000,000 Bq/m3 of Tritium beside reactor2 turbine building

Related to this article..1,800,000 Bq/m3 of Tritium beside reactor4 / Facing the sea outside of plant port [URL]


High level of Tritium and all β nuclides (including Strontium-90) are measured from groundwater taken beside each reactor building and turbine building of reactor1~4.

The mixture of the coolant water and groundwater are retained in those buildings. If it’s leaking out of the buildings, it means the water that directly touched molten fuel is flowing to the Pacific. So far, Tepco has not even admitted the possibility of this direct leakage.

However, high level of Tritium / all β nuclides (including Strontium-90) are detected from a certain percentage of those samples.

According to Tepco, 20,000,000 Bq/m3 of Tritium was measured from groundwater taken on the seaside of reactor2 turbine building. The sampling date was 9/11/2013. This is near the area where Tepco built the impervious wall on the coastal line, but they didn’t mention the possibility that the groundwater was / is contaminated due to the direct leakage.

Having this significantly high level of Tritium measured just beside reactor2 building, Tepco has made no announcement about the possible direct leakage.







You can ignore the truth but the truth won’t ignore you.

[Strictement aucune fuite directe] 20 millions de Bq/m³ de tritium contre le bâtiment de la turbine du réacteur 2

Une forte radioactivité en tritium et en β (dont le strontium 90) est relevée dans les eaux souterraines prises à côté des bâtiments de chaque réacteur et de chaque turbine pour les réacteurs 1 à 4.

Ces bâtiments contiennent un mélange d’eaux souterraines et d’eaux de refroidissement. Si ça fuit en dehors des bâtiments ça signifie que l’eau qui est allée directement au contact des combustibles fondus s’écoule vers le Pacifique. Pour l’instant, Tepco n’a pas encore reconnu même une possibilité de fuite directe.
Or, on a une forte radioactivité en β (dont le strontium 90) et en tritium dans une bonne partie des échantillons.

Selon Tepco, 20 000 000 (20 millions) Bq/m³ de tritium ont été relevés dans les eaux souterraines du côté mer du bâtiment de la turbine du réacteur 2. L’échantillon est du 11 septembre 2013. C’est proche de la zone où Tepco a construit son mur étanche le long du rivage mais ils n’évoquent pas la possibilité de contamination par fuite directe des eaux souterraines.
Tepco n’a fait aucune allusion à une possibilité de fuite directe même sur ce relevé particulièrement fort en tritium juste à côté du bâtiment de la turbine du réacteur 2.

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.
