50m3 of contaminated rainwater leaked from concrete base of another tank area. Tepco’s subcontract worker found it on 1/12/2014.

They let it leak for 17 hours.

It contained 5,900 Bq/m3 of Strontium-90. Tepco states the retained contaminated rainwater leaked from the damaged sealing part of the concrete base joint.


It has been less than 3 weeks since they leaked 225m3 of contaminated rainwater to the ground. It proved nothing has been improved since last leakage accident.

This time, the leaked tank area is the nearest to the sea. Tepco hasn’t announced the potential influence to the sea.

50 m³ d’eaux extrêmement radioactives ont fuit de l’embase en béton d’une autre zone de citernes. Un ouvrier d’un sous-traitant de Tepco l’a découvert le 12 janvier 2014.
Ils l’ont laissé fuir pendant 17 heures.
Il y avait 5 900 Bq/m3 de strontium 90. Tepco affirme que les eaux de pluie extrêmement radioactives endiguées ont fuit à partir d’une jonction endommagée du joint avec l’embase en béton.

La fuite dans le sol des 225 m³ d’eaux extrêmement radioactives a moins de 3 semaines.
Ceci prouve que rien n’a été amélioré depuis cette dernière fuite accidentelle.

Cette fois-ci, la zone de citernes concernée est celle la plus proche de la mer. Tepco n’a rien mentionné concernant son impact potentiel en mer.

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.
