JP Gov doubts the reliability of Tepco's radiation measurement / Nuclear Regulatory Agency to send inspectors

Following up this article.. NRA “Tepco’s nuclide analysis may have a significant error” [URL]


On 9/30/2013, Nuclear Regulation Authority commented they are planning to send inspectors to Tepco’s radiation measurement site in the working group meeting for the contaminated water in Fukushima nuclear plant.


NRA has been doubting the reliability of Tepco’s nuclide analysis. Also, in mid September, Tepco discharged the “rainwater” retained in the tank areas due to the Typhoon. However, they took only 5 minutes to analyze Cesium-134/137 of the sample to check if it’s really rainwater, which NRA found questionable about the quality.

NRA commented the inspectors from Nuclear Regulatory Agency are going to see them analyzing the samples actually.



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

Le 30 septembre 2013 au cours de la réunion du groupe de travail sur les eaux extrêmement radioactives de la centrale nucléaire de Fukushima, la Nuclear Regulation Authority a déclaré qu’ils prévoyaient d’envoyer des inspecteurs sur le site de mesure de la radioactivité de Tepco.

La NRA doute de la fiabilité des analyses des nucléides de Tepco. En outre, mi-septembre, Tepco a déversé les “eaux de pluie” accumulées dans les zones des citernes après le typhon. Il ne leur a cependant fallu que 5 minutes pour analyser le césium 134/137 de leur échantillon pour décider si c’était vraiment de l’eau de pluie, ce que la NRA trouve douteux en qualité.
La NRA a déclaré que des inspecteurs de la Nuclear Regulatory Agency allaient les rencontrer pour voir comment ils font effectivement leurs analyses.

Vous pouvez ignorer la vérité mais la vérité ne vous ignorera pas.

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.
