Tepco discharged “rainwater” of 2 tank area dams again / Not even a Typhoon weather
On 10/23/2013, Tepco discharged “rainwater” retained in two tank area dams again. Radioactive densities were lower than the safety limit according to Tepco.
Two more Typhoons are coming to Japan from this weekend. (cf, Two more Typhoons are coming to Japan / Meteorological Agency “Unpredictable” [URL]) Also, the back-up tanks of 4,000 tonnes capacity are nearly full. (cf, Back-up tanks of 4,000 tonnes are already nearly full with two more Typhoons coming [URL 2])
Tepco claims they had to release the water because it continued raining.
J’ai décidé d’accepter temporairement les dons à nouveau à cause du guidage de la famille japonaise et de la prochaine recherche. Merci d’y penser.
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.
