[Groundwater contamination] 3,200,000 Bq/m3 of all β from groundwater besides 300m3 leaked tank

According to Tepco, significantly high level of all β nuclides (including Strontium-90) was measured from the groundwater taken beside the leaked tank that experienced 300m3 of leakage. The reading was 3,200,000 Bq/m3.
The sample was taken in the North side of the leaked tank, where is assumed to be where the leaked water flowed to.
In the South side, it was only 67,000 Bq/m3.
The source of this contamination is possibly the leaked water from the tank.
Selon Tepco, une radioactivité intense en β nucléides (dont le strontium 90) a été relevée dans les eaux souterraines prises à côté de la citerne ayant laissé partir les 300 m³. Le relevé était de 3 200 000 (3,2 millions) Bq/m³.
L’échantillon provient du nord de la citerne de la fuite, ce qui est supposé être par où cette fuite s’est écoulée.
Côté sud, on avait 67 000 Bq/m³ “seulement”. La source de cette contamination doit être l’eau de cette fuite.

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.
