Following up this article.. Contamination level in seaside of reactor2 still increasing / 2,100,000,000 → 2,400,000,000 Bq/m3 [URL]


All β nuclide density (including Strontium-90) is still increasing in the seaside of reactor2 (As graph below). On 1/13/2014, it was 2,400,000,000 Bq/m3 but it spiked up to be 2,700,000,000 Bq/m3 on 1/16/2014.

Tepco is still repeating the same explanation that it is possibly because the groundwater pump is gathering highly contaminated water underground and denying the possibility of the new leakages.

La radioactivité β (dont le strontium 90) continue d’augmenter sur le côté mer du réacteur 2  (graphique ci-dessous). Le 13 janvier 2014 on était à 2,4 milliards de Bq/m³ et c’est passé à 2,7 en trois jours, le 16 janvier 2014.
Tepco radote toujours la même explication d’une probable récupération par la pompe d’eaux extrêmement radioactives et nie toujours toute possibilité de nouvelle fuite.

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.
