[The reason of sticking to groundwater bypass plan] Tepco “For some reason”

Note : If you are from the international mass media, Don’t read this site before taking a contact with me.



It was almost baseless why Tepco was sticking to groundwater bypass plan. Tepco’s vice president Aizawa stated that in the press conference of 12/11/2013.


Aizawa commented, they “thought” the source of groundwater flowing to Fukushima plant was Abukuma mountain range, where is in 10~20 km west of Fukushima plant.

However they “realized” the groundwater is mainly from the rainfall inside of the plant area based on the latest simulation published this December.

He says groundwater bypass plan was based on the assumption that the groundwater is coming from the mountain range, but now that the groundwater source turned out to be rainfall, paving the plant area is more effective.

About the reason why they thought the groundwater source was the mountain range, Aizawa stated “for some reason”.


Tepco is planning to pave more than half of the plant area (1.9 km2 / 3.5 km2) to reduce the groundwater flowing to the plant buildings, which is estimated to be 400m3 per day.




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.

[L’origine du plan de dérivation des eaux souterraines] Tepco : “parce que”
Note : Si vous êtes de la grande presse internationale, ne lisez pas ce site sans avoir préalablement pris contact avec moi.


La raison du maintient par Tepco de son plan de dérivation des eaux souterraines est complètement absurde.  C’est ce que le vice-président de Tepco, M. Aizawa, a affirmé au cours de la conférence de presse du 11 décembre  2013.

M. Aizawa a déclaré qu’ils “pensaient” que la source des eaux souterraines inondant la centrale de Fukushima se trouve au flanc du mont Abukuma qui est à 10 – 20 km à l’ouest de la centrale de Fukushima.
Leur dernière simulation de ce mois de décembre leur a fait “réaliser” que les eaux souterraines proviennent surtout des pluies qui tombent sur la centrale.
Il a déclaré que le plan de dérivation des eaux souterraines s’appuyait sur l’hypothèse qu’elles provenaient surtout du flanc de la montagne mais maintenant que leur source se révèle être par les pluies, paver le domaine de la centrale sera plus efficace.
A une question sur la raison qui leur a fait penser que cette source était le flanc de la montagne, M. Aizawa a répondu “parce que”.

Tepco prévoit de paver plus de la moitié de la surface du domaine de la centrale (1,9 km² / 3,5 km²) pour réduire la quantité d’eaux souterraines inondant quotidiennement les bâtiments de la centrale, quantité estimée à 400 m³ par jour.


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. Paving over will be like making a flat platform to just SLIDE slowly into the ocean..or flip over quickly. It does not stop the groundwater contact with the corium, its underground a long distance. Either way if a slide/slip happens, bye bye Fukushima.

  2. W… T… F…

    I still can’t believe that these are the people put in charge of all of our futures! It took them 3 YEARS to realise the reason for that GINORMOUS AMOUNT of contaminated groundwater was insufficient and inadequate paving in and around the plant?

    I can’t even.

  3. Radiation Shielding

    It is perhaps overly kind, to state that TEPCO is ‘less than candid’.

    Paving the FDNPP will reduce ambient RADIATION levels for the workers in the plant, by creating a vague semblance of a rock shield.

    Water from upgrade flows down through aquifers, to the sea, all over the world. TEPCO has build some underground barriers which are somewhat limiting and diverting water flows in the vicinity of the plant.

    There are several aquifer levels under the plant. Perhaps one shallow layer over one small distance interval does receive a slight majority of its water from above. However it is a MORAL CERTAINTY that TEPCO is lying … about virtually everything … virtually every day. It is clear that there is a vast array of ‘spin artist’ from the IAEA, DC, Wall Street and Tokyo that are furiously working to alter the public perception of this TOTAL DISASTER.

  4. Perhaps, during the recent (~ a dozen), sequential TYPHOONS …

    Perhaps at the peak hour of torrential rainfall at high tide.

    Perhaps for the flicker of an eye …

    The SOAK rate approximated the downhill continuous flux. I doubt it, but it is remotely possible, for a few moments.

    Of course, it is still a lie, but at least a better class of lies than most of the hogwash peddled by ‘Team Nuke’.

  5. Just for grins,

    Let’s make up a totally undocumented, unresearched, totally unscientific WAG about Fukushima workers.

    I shall call it the Fukushima Hotfoot Syndrome. The Fukushima grounds are soaked in highly radioactive water, which is emitting alpha, beta, gamma and perhaps even neutrons. And much of this radiation is of the inverse square rule for distance. And the normal monitor levels are about 1 meter and up.

    So I shall postulate a previously undiagnosed worker condition for the Fukushima contractors and Yakuza conscripts.

    I should not be surprised if the SOLES of their feet are red and blistered, even if their whole body radiation dose is still within the nominal permitted levels. It would also seem plausible that the workers are having all manner of other problems with their feet, ankles and lower legs. I am going to guess shooting pain, arthritis, tissue breakdown, bleeding, spurs, bunions, paresthesia and paralysis.

    What are the odds, that I have guessed an extant malady at the FDNPP?

    1. Oops, left off Burning Sensation, 1st, 2nd & 3rd degree burns.

      I suspect that it would be a good bet.

    2. Gonadatrophy,

      Did I mention lesions and/or circulatory problems?

      Personal dosimeters measure individual exposure to radiated energy. We tend to wear dosimeters pinned to our shirt pocket or around the neck. That standard practice does not reveal much about the Fukushima worker radiation dosage, since much of the dosage is due to rising levels of HIGHLY contaminated water.

      So in the standing position, the feet and lower legs receive a MUCH higher radiation dosage than your shirt pocket. And in the sitting and squatting position, worker gonads are at ‘ground zero’. Also, most of the radioactive gasses tend to be ‘heavier than air’, so they linger and shine from low places as well.

      Fukushima workers need SUNBLOCK-5000 and I doubt they get anything of the sort. There has been no proactive worker protection at the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant, until now. Paving the nasty, radioactive wasteland is actually an overdue step. IMHO

  6. Secrets,

    The Japan parliament, arguably best described as a 2nd Imperial Diet of Worms, has recently passed a somewhat draconian ‘State Secrets’ law. Thus and thereby, the Fukushima Workers are rendered mute, and even more helpless and hapless than before. Even those poor Yakuza conscripts clearing rubble from the water intake valves at midnight, could scream from the pain, until they died of ARS.

    So, we on the outside, are the SOLE voice, of these grossly abused Fukushima workers. They are suffering in silence, and muted screams, much like the GWB waterboarded suspects in Gitmo. Obama does not torture so many. He merely blows them up, including a significant number of innocents, and no small number of noncombatant American citizens.

    Fukushima Hot Nuts is a companion malady to our postulated Fukushima Hot Feet, on the job hazard. And the Fukushima worker/victims MUST suffer in ENFORCED SILENCE.

    1. Congress,

      I do not wish, by omission, to imply or have it inferred that the dirtbags in the USA ‘congress of corrupt-cowards’ are in any material fashion, ‘any better’ than the Japan ‘Diet of Worms’.

      That would not represent my intention at all. The USA congress of corrupt-cowards, fully deserves to ‘hang by the neck until dead’, for their actions and inactions in the ongoing Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disasters. There are at least another thousand reasons that the USA congress of corrupt-cowards; should collectively swing from the gallows, or a gibbet. IMHO.

      As it typically happens in such dark times … the United Nations is as bad, or worse. So, the world hangs in the balance, teetering and swaying in the breeze. The Pacific Ocean is emitting an ever broadening spectral energy signature of radioactive death. And the markets and governments dither, with their thumbs up their collective ignorant, suicidal butts. IMHO

      1. Parliament

        It is generally unnecessary, redundant, over-the-top and perhaps even rude, for the USA citizenry to overly-decry the actions of the UK Parliament and/or their regents. Such objections were fully vetted from about 1750 A.D. through about 1814 A.D., via FORCE of ARMS.

        So, we shall simply mention, that the UK Parliament has been equally non-exemplary in their Uranium Cartel, Team Nuke actions with respect to Fukushima.

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.
