Steam found coming up from the top of reactor3 again / Reason is not verified yet
Fukushima Diary reported steam was found coming up from the top of reactor3 on 9/17/2013.
(cf, [Steam after typhoon] “Steam” observed from the top of reactor3 again / humidity was only 53% [URL])
According to Tepco, the “steam” was observed coming up from the same location of reactor3 around 8AM of 9/18/2013 again. It wasn’t seen by 10AM.
In the secretariat meeting for Fukushima decommissioning on 8/29/2013, Prof. Yamana from Kyoto University Research Reactor Institute stated Tepco needs to investigate what is actually discharged as the “steam” such Tritium. However, no analysis data has been published yet.
(cf, Kyoto Uni Prof. “Tritium might be discharged directly from the reactor3 to the atmosphere” [URL])

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.
