[New Leakage] 200,000,000Bq/m3 of all βdetected from leaked contaminated water / 430 L leaked

Following up this article.. Tepco “Treating rainwater retained in a dam” → “Found another tank leakage on-going” [URL]


According to Tepco, the volume of leaked water was 430 L.

About the radioactive density of the water retained in the tank area, Cs-134/137 density was 72,000 Bq/m3 but all β nuclide (including Strontium-90) was 200,000,000 Bq/m3.

All β concentration of the water in the leaked tank was 580,000,000 Bq/m3. It is assumed the leaked water was diluted by rainwater.





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

Selon Tepco, le volume de la fuite est de 430 L.

La radioactivité en césium 134/137 des eaux retenues dans la zone des citernes était de 72 000 Bq/m³ mais celle des β nucléides (dont le strontium 90) était à 200 000 000 Bq/m³ (deux cent millions).
La radioactivité β dans la citerne qui a fuit est de 580 000 000 Bq/m³ (cinq cent quatre vingt millions). On suppose que la fuite a été diluée par la pluie.

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.
