Tepco doesn’t measure Tritium in drains around 300m3 leakage tanks

In the press conference of 9/6/2013, Tepco’ spokesman commented they don’t / won’t measure Tritium in the water of drains around the leaked tank.

Since 300m3 highly contaminated water leakage was found, Tepco has been testing the water in the drains around the leaked tank area.

However, they only analyze the samples for Cs-134/137 and all β.

Tepco states the “all β” includes Tritium, so they don’t particularly look into Tritium.


The drains are directly connected to the Pacific outside of Fukushima nuclear plant port. All the water in the drain flows out to the sea without any filtration facilities.






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

Tepco ne relève plus le tritium des caniveaux autour des citernes de la fuite des 300 m³


Au cours de la conférence de presse du 6 septembre 2013, le porte-parole de Tepco a déclaré qu’ils ne relèvent pas/plus le tritium dans l’eau des caniveaux autour de la citerne qui a fuit.
Depuis la découverte de la fuite des 300 m³ d’eaux extrêmement radioactives, Tepco testait l’eau des caniveaux autour de la zone de ces citernes.
Ils n’y recherchent cependant que le Cs-134/137 et les β-nucléides.
Tepco affirme que les “β-nucléides” incluent le tritium, alors ils ne le regardent pas spécialement.

Les caniveaux sont directement reliés au Pacifique à l’extérieur du port de la centrale nucléaire de Fukushima. Toutes les eaux de ce caniveau s’écoulent dans la mer sans passer par aucun appareillage de filtration.

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.
