Tepco’s vice president “Tritium got into groundwater certainly”
Following up this article..64,000,000 Bq/m3 Tritium in groundwater besides leaked tank / 15 times much as 2 days before [URL]
In the press conference of 9/11/2013, Tepco’s vice president Aizawa stated Tritium density is increasing in the groundwater around the leaked tank that experienced 300m3 of leakage. It’s sure that at least Tritium got into the groundwater.
He emphasized now it is important to verify where the contaminated groundwater flows.
Tepco has groundwater pumping wells for “bypass” downstream of the contaminated groundwater stream. If the contaminated groundwater reaches the pumping wells, Tepco would need to “reconsider” the groundwater bypass plan.
Au cours de la conférence de presse du 11 septembre 2013, le vice-président de Tepco, M. Aizawa, a affirmé que la radioactivité en tritium augmente dans les eaux souterraines autour de la citerne qui avait laissé fuir les 300 m³ d’eaux extrêmement radioactives. Il est certain qu’au moins le tritium est parti dans les eaux souterraines.
Il a insisté sur l’importance de vérifier par où s’écoulent maintenant les eaux souterraines extrêmement radioactives.
Tepco a creusé des forages pour pomper les eaux souterraines et les “dériver” en aval du courant d’eaux souterraines extrêmement radioactives. Si les eaux souterraines extrêmement radioactives atteignent ces puits de pompage, Tepco devra “reconsidérer” son plan de dérivation.

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.
