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 on the coastal line. However it caused the groundwater level to rise, so Tepco is pumping up the groundwater.

This high level of all β nuclide was measured in the pumped water. The reading was 360,000,000 Bq/m3 on 9/2/2013. The past highest reading was 190,000,000 Bq/m3 on 8/19/2013.

Tritium level hasn’t been announced yet.



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

La radioactivité en β a doublé dans les eaux pompées du côté mer du réacteur 2


Sur le côté mer du réacteur 2, les β-nucléides (dont le strontium 90) ont pratiquement doublé en 2 semaines.

Tepco avait construit le mur étanche le long de la rive pour arrêter la contamination de la mer mais il a provoqué une montée des eaux souterraines que Tepco tente depuis de diminuer en les pompant.
Une montée de la radioactivité en β nucléides a été relevée dans les eaux pompées.
Ils ont relevé 360 000 000 Bq/m³ (360 millions) le 2 septembre 2013.
Le record précédent était à 190 000 000 Bq/m³ (190 millions), le 19 août 2013.
La radioactivité en tritium n’est pas encore communiquée.

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.
