Tritium keeps increasing upstream of groundwater bypass / Tepco “Under investigation”

Following up this article.. Tritium density in groundwater keeps increasing in the East of 300m3 leakage tank/Heading for the groundwater bypass [URL]


3 days have passed but Tritium density is still increasing. At the moment of 10/4/2013, it’s 1.53 times much as last time reported (1,700,000→2,600,000 Bq/m3).

About this constant increasing trend, Tepco announced they are still investigating the cause.

3 jours sont passés mais la concentration en tritium monte toujours. Au 4 octobre 2013, on est à 1,53 fois au-dessus de la derière mesure publiée (1,7 →2,6 millions de Bq/m³).
Tepco a déclaré qu’ils sont toujours en train de rechercher la cause de cette augmentation constante.

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.
