According to Tepco, their employee found the pure water underground tank overflowing around 13:00 of 9/17/2013. This dam is to accept the fresh water from the near dam called “Sakashita dam”.

Overflowed water flowed to the near drain but Tepco states the Cesium-134/137 density was lower than the detectable level (Cs-134 : <650 Bq/m3, Cs-137 : < 750 Bq/m3).

Selon Tepco, le 17 septembre 2013 vers 13:00 leur employé a découvert la citerne des eaux douces en train de déborder. Ce barrage est fait pour recevoir les eaux douces du barrage voisin nommé “barrage de Sakashita”.

Les eaux qui ont débordé sont allées dans le canal voisin mais Tepco affirme que la radioactivité en césium 134/137 était inférieure au niveau détectable (Cs 134 : <650 Bq/m³, Cs 137 : < 750 Bq/m³).

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.
