[Next typhoon approaching Fukushima] Tepco plans to transfer contaminated water back to reactor buildings

The next Typhoon (Pabuk) is estimated to approach offshore Fukushima nuclear plant around 21:00 of 9/26/2013 (JST).


When the last Typhoon hit Fukushima plant on 9/16/2013, they ended up discharging the “rainwater” retained in the tank areas.

(cf, Tepco discharged “rainwater” retained in 7 tank areas due to the Typhoon [URL])

This time Tepco considers to transfer the overflowing “rainwater” to 4,000 tones tank by vacuum cars. In the worst scenario, they plan to transfer the overflowing water back to the reactor buildings according to Tepco.


It would increase the volume of contaminated water to filter.





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

[Un autre typhon approche de Fukushima] Tepco prévoit de remettre les eaux contaminées dans les bâtiments des réacteurs


Le typhon suivant (Pabuk) est estimé passer au large de la centrale nucléaire de Fukushima vers 21:00 le 26 septembre 2013 (JST).

Lorsque, le 16 septembre 2013, le précédent avait frappé la centrale de Fukushima, ils en étaient venus à déverser à la mer les “eaux de pluie” retenues dans les zones des citernes. (cf. Tepco déverse des “eaux de pluie” bloquées dans 7 zones de citernes à cause du typhon)

Cette fois-ci, Tepco envisage de mettre ces “eaux de pluie” qui débordent dans une citerne de 4 000 via des véhicules aspirateurs. Au pire des cas et selon Tepco, ils prévoient de les transvaser dans les bâtiments des réacteurs.

Ça augmenterait le volume des eaux contaminées à filtrer.

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.
