[Column] Summary of Fukushima situation – Recent events and consequences about contaminated water problems

The contaminated water problem is becoming very complicated.

I’d love to summarize the recent events.


1. The start


One of the huge tanks had a leakage. The volume of leaked water was 300m3.

Since then, Tepco found numbers of the leakages but this 300m3 leakage has been the center of media coverage.


2. Where did it go ?


The leaked water got into the near drain. The drain is connected to the Pacific, outside of Fukushima plant port. There is no dam, no filtration facilities along the drain. The leaked water should have gone to the sea straight away.

The rest of water probably sank underground.


3. Groundwater contamination


High level of radioactive water -Tritium is measured in the groundwater beside the tank, and the number is increasing. On 9/11/2013, vice president of Tepco admitted it got into the groundwater stream.


4. What is the after effect ?


The contaminated groundwater flows to the wells. Tepco is longing for discharging the pumped water from the wells to the Pacific.

The radiation density in the well water is increasing, but Tepco doesn’t admit it was contaminated because of the tank leakage.

The pumped water from these wells won’t be filtrated. In short, the leaked water will be discharged to the pacific via drain, and via bypass wells.


5. How bad it can be ?


There are 350 tanks of the same type and it’s increasing.

The cause of this 300m3 leakage hasn’t even be verified. More leakages are to come.

However, Tepco has no spare tanks to empty these 350 tanks.

There are least they can do. and that’s what media don’t report about.



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

[Édito] Résumé de la situation à Fukushima – Événements récents et conséquences sur le problème des eaux extrêmement radioactives


Le problème des eaux extrêmement radioactives est en train de devenir très complexe.
J’aimerai résumer les événements récents.

1. Le début

Une des énormes citernes a connu une fuite. Le volume de cette fuite a été de 300 m³.
Depuis, Tepco a découvert de nombreuses autres fuites mais ces 300 m³ sont restés au centre de la couverture médiatique.

2. Où c’est parti ?

Les eaux de la fuite sont tombées dans le canal d’évacuation tout proche. Ce canal va directement dans le Pacifique, sans passer par le port de la centrale de Fukushima. Il n’y a ni endiguements, ni systèmes de filtration le long de ce canal. Les eaux de la fuite ont du filer directement jusqu’à la mer.
Le reste s’est sans doute infiltré en sous-sol.

3. Contamination des eaux souterraines

Des eaux extrêmement radioactives : Du tritium est relevé dans les eaux souterraines à côté de la citerne et la concentration augmente. Le vice-président de Tepco a reconnu le 11 septembre 2013 qu’elles rejoignaient le flot des eaux souterraines.

4. Quelles conséquences ?

Les eaux souterraines contaminées s’écoulent dans les puits. Tepco veut déverser directement les eaux pompées de ces puits dans le Pacifique.
La radioactivité des puits est en train d’augmenter mais Tepco ne reconnaît pas qu’ils ont été contaminés par la fuite de la citerne.
Les eaux pompées de ces puits ne seront pas filtrées. En bref, les eaux de la fuite vont être balancées en l’état dans l’océan via le canal et via les puits de dérivation.

5. Ça peut empirer jusqu’où ?

Il y a 350 citernes de ce type et ça augmente.
La raison de ces 300 m³ de fuite n’a même pas été vérifiée. D’autres fuites vont survenir.
Néanmoins, Tepco n’a pas de citernes de réserve pour vider ces 350-là.
Ce serait le moins qu’ils puissent faire. et c’est ce dont les médias ne parlent pas.

Vous pouvez ignorer la vérité mais la vérité ne vous ignorera pas.

  1. The fact that the concrete slabs which support the tanks was poured with NO REBAR is truly amazing. How can this be???

  2. In 2011, it had been predicted that the contaminated water will go into the sea and cause great problems in drinking water. Nobody seemed to believe in it ; now, Men are experiencing this sad truth. Nothing can be done about it because it is too late ! All you can do is learn urgently how to protect from radiation.

  3. The TEPCO Disease

    TEPCO is a mockery of science, engineering, business and ‘utility’; rather than the embodiment thereof. TEPCO does not conduct any portion of their core business appropriately, or even sanely. It is thus HIGHLY appropriate, that TEPCO is now destitute, orphaned and a ward of the state.

    This mockery extends FAR beyond the corporate entity of TEPCO. In fact ‘The TEPCO DISEASE’ has infected all the regional AC electrical grids, on earth. The electrical grid, is a grossly wasteful energy system from power generation to end-user power consumption. Electrical generation stations in general, and nuclear power plants in particularly, are thermodynamic wastrels, rather than good stewards of the common weal. Electrical motors have incorporated few of the advances of the 20th or 21st centuries.

    Electrical grid stakeholders do not serve their PRIME MISSION of delivering economic power to their customers. They are nominally ‘utilities’, but they have abandoned the concepts of ‘utility’ and usefulness. These incompetent entities attempt to deceive, rob and rule; rather than serve their customers, prefectures (states, provinces) and nations.

    1. Nuclear Lies

      The lies of Dr. Brainwasher (Shunichi Yamashita) are infamous in Japan, and are increasingly, and openly ridiculed in the USA.

      Natural News exclusive: Fukushima victim exposes Japanese government’s attempted bizarre brainwashing of radiation victims

      This blogspot website has located and translated several key brainwashing phrases uttered by Dr. Yamashita as part of the Japanese government’s propaganda campaign. The following statements span several online videos featuring “Dr. Brainwasher.” Each of these statements is a total propaganda fabrication. The comments in ALL CAPS are my own:

      • “To tell you the truth, radiation doesn’t affect people who are smiling. Only those who are worried. This has clearly been demonstrated by animal studies.” (HUH? WHAH?)

      • “Laughter will remove your radiation phobia.” (COOL, ‘CUZ I’M LAUGHING ALREADY!)

      • “If you laugh, radiation won’t get you.” (NOW I CAN SAFELY WORK AT A MAMMOGRAPHY CLINIC!)

      • “Internal exposure has 10 times less health risk than external exposure.” (SO IF I EAT URANIUM, IT’S SAFER THAN USING IT AS A SKIN WHITENING CREAM?)

      • “Children can play outdoors.” (AS LONG AS YOU DON’T MIND THEM DYING)

      • “I can tell you this, the health effects [of Fukushima radiation exposure] are minimal.” (TO COCKROACHES)

      • “We don’t have to worry about the health effects of ordinary people.” (BECAUSE WE DON’T REALLY CARE IF ORDINARY PEOPLE DIE ANYWAY)

    2. Few statements in human history have been so moronic.

      There is no suggestion that only Japanese academics have been compromised. Quite the contrary, this insanity appears to be pandemic. So, for example, the Wall Street Journal published this lunacy last year. I am NOT presently aware of a retraction.

      “Looking back more than a year after the event, it is clear that the Fukushima reactor complex, though nowhere close to state-of-the-art, was adequately designed to contain radiation. New reactors can be made even safer, of course, but the bottom line is that Fukushima passed the test.”

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.
