Leaked 300m3 leakage possibly penetrated underground just beside the tank / 1.7 mSv/h in 30cm deep underground

On 9/20/2013, Tepco released the boring core analysis data around the 300m3 leakage tank.

From their data, the ground is contaminated in 20 ~ 30cm depth. The highest contamination level was 1.7 mSv/h in 30cm underground.

The leaked tank is situated on 20cm thickness of the concrete base, but the leaked water possibly penetrated underground immediately after the leakage.





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

La fuite de 300 m³ aurait pénétré dans le sol juste à côté de la citerne : 1,7 mSv/h à 30 cm de profondeur au sol


Le 20 septembre 2013, Tepco publie les résultats de l’analyse principale des forages autour de la citerne des 300 m³.

Selon leurs données, le sol est contaminé dès 20 – 30 cm de profondeur. Le record de radioactivité est de 1,7 mSv/h à 30 cm de profondeur.
La citerne qui a fuit est posée sur une base de béton de 20 cm d’épaisseur mais l’eau de la fuite s’est sans doute infiltrée dans le sol immédiatement à sa sortie.

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.
