Tepco not to disclose radiation level of seawater near drain outlet after the Typhoon / “Couldn’t collect sample”

Having measured the high level of radiation in the drain, Tepco doesn’t disclose the radiation level of the seawater near the outlet of the drain, which is located outside of the plant port. (cf, 2,300,000 Bq/m3 of all β nuclide detected in drain connected to the Pacific after Typhoon / Highest reading ever [URL])

The unannounced data is about Cs-134/137 and all β nuclide (including Strontium-90) density after the Typhoon.

Tepco states they couldn’t collect the samples because of the bad weather.

Après le typhon, Tepco ne révèle pas le niveau de radioactivité de l’eau de mer au déversoir du canal : “On n’a pas pu échantillonner”


Après avoir relevé une extrême radioactivité dans le canal, Tepco ne révèle pas le niveau de radioactivité de l’eau de mer près du déversoir de ce canal, lequel se situe en dehors du port de la centrale. (cf. Après le typhon : 2,3 millions de Bq/m³ de radioactivité β dans une évacuation vers le Pacifique : Record absolu battu)
Les données non-communiquées concernent le Cs 134/137 et la radioactivité β (dont le strontium 90) après le passage du typhon.
Tepco affirme qu’ils n’ont pas pu collecter d’échantillons à cause du mauvais temps.


Pas trouvé le temps de remettre les fonctions pour les dons au 14 octobre 2013. Ça devrait revenir demain. Merci de m’avoir lu.

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.
