JP Gov “Analyze groundwater of shallow layer and deep layer” → Tepco “Manpower not enough”

Fukushima Diary reported Tritium density was stably increasing on the coastal side of reactor1 on 9/4/2013.

(cf, [Mysterious No media coverage] Tritium level in groundwater still increasing near reactor1 [URL])


In order to see the connection among Tritium density, groundwater flow and the possible direct leakage from reactor1 turbine building, NRA required Tepco to take two sorts of groundwater samples, which one is from the shallow layer of the ground, the other one is from the deeper layer of the ground.


As the reason not to implement the double sampling, Tepco commented they have no sufficient manpower due to making other borings and samplings.



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

Le Gouv : “Analysez les eaux souterraines des couches superficielles et profondes” → Tepco : “On manque de main d’oeuvre”

Pour trouver le lien entre le tritium, les eaux souterraines et une fuite directe depuis le bâtiment de la turbine du réacteur 1, la NRA a donné l’ordre à Tepco de prendre deux types d’échantillons d’eau souterraine,  un dans les couches superficielles du sol, l’autre dans les couches profondes.

Tepco a déclaré qu’ils n’avaient pas assez de main d’oeuvre parce qu’ils sont en train de creuser d’autres forages d’échantillonnage en tant que justification de ne pas procéder à ce double échantillonnage.

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.
