According to Tepco, they discharged the retained water in the local dams of 7 tank areas at 14:30 of 9/16/2013. (JST)

The water is going out of the local dams of each tank area, which was installed to stop leaked water spreading.

Tepco states the retained water possible could have overflowed the local dams due to the Typhoon, but they didn’t address the difference of discharging and overflowing.

Tepco didn’t announce the Cesium-134/137 density of the retained “rainwater”, but because the announced Strontium-90 density is lower than the safety limit (30,000 Bq/m3) limit, they discharged it as the emergency measures.

The highest all β nuclides (including Strontium-90) was 9,000 Bq/m3 according to Tepco.

Tepco déverse des “eaux de pluie” bloquées dans 7 zones de citernes à cause du typhon

Selon Tepco, ils ont déversé des eaux retenues dans les barrages locaux de 7 zones de citernes le 16 septembre 2013 à 14:30 (JST).
L’eau débordait des barrages locaux autour de chaque zone de citernes où ils ont été mis en place pour empêcher la sortie d’éventuelles fuites.
Tepco affirme que les eaux les eaux retenues ont certainement débordé à cause du typhon mais ils n’ont fait aucune différence entre déborder et déverser.
Tepco ne communique pas le niveau de radioactivité en césium 134/137 de ces eaux “de pluie” mais disent les avoir déversées dans l’urgence parce que leur radioactivité en strontium 90 était inférieure à la limite “de sécurité” (30 ooo Bq/m³).
Le record en radioactivité β (dont le strontium 90) était à 9 000 Bq/m³ selon Tepco.

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.
