In order to reduce the groundwater volume to treat, Tepco is planning to pump up groundwater before it flows to the plant buildings and discharge it to the Pacific, which is called “Groundwater bypass”. The “bypassed” water will not be filtered.
From their plan published on 8/29/2013, Tepco is planning to discharge it to the outside of the plant port.
The reason is not announced.
Currently Tepco is seeking the way of obtaining the approval from the local fishery cooperatives.
Pour réduire le volume d’eaux souterraines à traiter, Tepco prévoir de les pomper avant qu’elles n’atteignent les bâtiments de la centrale puis de les déverser dans le Pacifique, c’est ce qu’ils appellent “la dérivation des eaux souterraines”. Les eaux “dérivées” ne seront pas filtrées.
Selon le plan qu’ils ont publié le 29 août 2013, Tepco prévoir de les déverser en-dehors du port de la centrale.
La raison n’en est pas donnée.
Tepco recherche actuellement un moyen pour obtenir l’aval des pêcheurs des coopératives locales.

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.
