The groundwater level is also rising in the mountain side of Fukushima plant, according to Tepco. It’s approx. 800m from the coastal line, where a underground reservoir is located.

From 11/29 to 12/1/2013, all β nuclide density increased from 8,600,000 Bq/m3 to 20,000,000 Bq/m3 in the leakage detector hole water of the reservoir, which made Tepco realize the rising groundwater level. Tepco is attempting to stop the reservoir from floating.

Because of the underground wall on the coastal line, groundwater level is increasing in various places near the sea. However, Tepco hasn’t officially admitted the groundwater level is also rising even in the mountain side of the plant area widely, and it can be due to the underground wall, which can be the only cause.

The rising groundwater level also increases the atmospheric dose of seaside. (cf, Fukushima plant radiation increasing due to the rising contaminated groundwater / “Covering with lead plate” [URL 2])

This October, Fukushima plant area even experienced the major land subsidence. It was supposed to be solely because of a typhoon.

I reject the international mass media to read this site without taking a contact with me.I know some of the mass media corporations read Fukushima Diary to understand the trend so they know when to report about Fukushima as if they were independently following it for a long time.
In short, they make you individual readers pay for this site while they pay nothing, and when they publish the “authorized news”, you pay for the “secondhand news”, which is nothing new for us.
This site is free for the individual readers, but not for corporations.In the world, this site is nearly the only source about Fukushima. I came here alone without any supporting organizations, background or anything. I’m not pleased to be exploited by the corporations that didn’t even properly report about Fukushima when 311 took place.

I demand them to take a contact with me BEFORE reading this site whatever the purpose is.

Les eaux souterraines remontent à 800 m du rivage

Selon Tepco, le niveau des eaux souterraines monte aussi sur le côté montagne de la centrale de Fukushima. C’est à environ 800 m du rivage où il y a un réservoir souterrain.

Entre le 29 nov et le 1er déc. 2013, la radioactivité β est passée de 8 600 000 Bq/m³ (8,6 millions) à 20 000 000 Bq/m³ (20 millions) dans le trou de détection des fuites du réservoir qui avait fait réaliser à Tepco la montée des eaux souterraines. Tepco tente d’empêcher les réservoirs de se mettre à flotter.
Le niveau des eaux souterraines augmente en différents endroits proches de la mer à cause du mur souterrain le long du rivage. Or, Tepco n’a pas reconnu officiellement que leur niveau augmente largement aussi sur le côté montagne de la centrale et que ce peut être à cause du mur souterrain, qu’il ne peut qu’en être la seule explication.

La montée des eaux souterraines induit aussi celle de la radioactivité ambiante du côté mer. (cf. La radioactivité augmente dans la centrale de Fukushima à cause de la montée des eaux souterraines : “Couvrir avec une plaque de plomb”)
En octobre dernier, le domaine de la centrale de Fukushima a même connu son plus grand effondrement de terrain. C’était supposé être uniquement du à un typhon. (cf. [Photo] Une pente de la centrale de Fukushima s’effondre sous les typhons)

J’interdis à la grande presse internationale de lire et d’utiliser ce site sans préalablement prendre contact avec moi. Je sais que certaines grandes sociétés de presse lisent le Fukushima Diary pour comprendre la tendance et trouver quand rendre compte de la situation de Fukushima comme s’ils la suivaient indépendamment depuis longtemps.
En résumé, ils vous font payer à vous, simples lecteurs, ce qu’ils prennent gratuitement dans ce site et lorsqu’ils publient des “nouvelles de première main” vous payez pour des “nouvelles resucées”, qui n’ont rien de nouveau pour nous.
Ce site est gratuit pour les lecteurs individuels, pas pour les sociétés. Ce site est pratiquement la seule source au monde sur Fukushima. Je viens ici seul sans aucun soutien d’organisation quelconque, ni références, ni rien. Je n’apprécie pas de me faire exploiter par ces sociétés qui n’ont même pas été foutues de relater correctement ce qui se passait à Fukushima quand a eu lieu le mois de mars 2011.

Je leur demande de prendre contact avec moi AVANT de lire ce site dans quelque but que ce soit.

  1. Nanomaterials and water filtration
    Membrane processes are considered key components of advanced water purification and desalination technologies and nanomaterials such as carbon nanotubes, nanoparticles, and dendrimers are contributing to the development of more efficient and cost-effective water filtration processes.
    There are two types of nanotechnology membranes that could be effective: nanostructured filters, where either carbon nanotubes or nanocapillary arrays provide the basis for nanofiltration; and nanoreactive membranes, where functionalized nanoparticles aid the filtration process.
    The researchers also note that advances in macromolecular chemistry such as the synthesis of dendritic polymers have provided opportunities to refine, as well as to develop effective filtration processes for purification of water contaminated by different organic solutes and inorganic anions.
    Nanotechnologies for water remediation
    Many areas, especially in developing countries, are seriously contaminated or damaged with consequent impoverishment of natural resources and serious effects on human health. Remediation of contaminated water – the process of removing, reducing or neutralizing water contaminants that threaten human health and/or ecosystem productivity and integrity – is a field of technology that has attracted much interest recently.
    In general, remediation technologies can be grouped into categories using thermal, physico-chemical or biological methods. The various techniques usually work well when applied to a specific type of water pollution, though no readily available treatments were discovered that could clean all types of pollutants. Due to the complex nature of many polluted waters, it is frequently necessary to apply several techniques to soil from a particular location to reduce the concentrations of pollutants to acceptable levels.
    Cloete and his co-authors write that most of the traditional technologies such as solvent extraction, activated carbon adsorption, and common chemical oxidation, whilst effective, very often are costly and time-consuming: “Biological degradation is environmentally friendly and cost-effective; but it is usually time-consuming. Thus, the ability to remove toxic contaminants from these environments to a safe level and doing so rapidly, efficiently, and within reasonable costs is important. Nanotechnology could play an important role in this regard. An active emerging area of research is the development of novel nanomaterials with increased affinity, capacity, and selectivity for heavy metals and other contaminants. The benefits from use of nanomaterials may derive from their enhanced reactivity, surface area and sequestration characteristics. A variety of nanomaterials are in various stages of research and development, each possessing unique functionalities that is potentially applicable to the remediation of industrial effluents, groundwater, surface water and drinking water.”
    The report provides detailed examples of various nanoparticles and nanomaterials that could be used in water remediation: zeolites, carbon nanotubes, self-assembled monolayer on mesoporous supports (SAMMS), biopolymers, single-enzyme nanoparticles, zero-valent iron nanoparticles, bimetallic iron nanoparticles, and nanoscale semiconductor photocatalysts.
    Bioactive nanoparticles for water disinfections
    There is a growing threat of water-borne infectious diseases, especially in the developing world. This threat is rapidly being exacerbated by demographic explosion, a global trend towards urbanization without adequate infrastructure to provide safe drinking water, increased water demand by agriculture that draws more and more of the potable water supply, and emerging pollutants and antibiotic-resistant pathogens that contaminate our water resources. No country is immune. Even in OECD countries, the number of outbreaks reported in the last decade demonstrates that transmission of pathogens by drinking water remains a significant problem. It is estimated that water-borne pathogens cause between 10 and 20 million deaths a year worldwide.
    According to Cloete, nanotechnology may present a reasonable alternative for development of new chlorine-free biocides. Among the most promising antimicrobial nanomaterials are metallic and metal-oxide nanoparticles, especially silver, and titanium dioxide catalysts for photocatalytic disinfections.

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.
