Tepco “Treating rainwater retained in a dam” → “Found another tank leakage on-going”
Another tank leakage was found.
Due to the Typhoon, the dams to surround the contaminated water tanks are becoming full of “rainwater”. Some of them have overflowed the dams.
(cf, [Collapsing contaminated water system] Two more tank areas overflowed “rainwater” due to the Typhoon [URL])
Around 20:00 of 10/2/2013, when a Tepco employee was treating the retained “rainwater”, he found contaminated water leaking from the top of the tank by chance. They described the dripping “as thick as a pencil”.
Le 2 octobre 2013 vers 20:00 alors qu’un salarié de Tepco travaillait sur les “eaux de pluie ” retenues, il a découvert par hasard de l’eau extrêmement radioactive en train de fuir du haut de la citerne. Ils ont décrit un jet “de la taille d’un crayon”.

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.
