Radiation measurement instrument got contaminated because of too high level of contaminated water in Fukushima plant

Some of the radiation measurement instruments are contaminated in Fukushima nuclear plant. NRA (Nuclear Regulation Authority) revealed in sea monitoring commission of 1/27/2014.


It is because they measured the contaminated water samples that are too radioactive. Since then, those instruments indicate of the presence of Cesium even without any samples.

The credibility of their measurements is quite questionable but Tepco states they can’t modify the past measurement data.

Les instruments de mesure de la radioactivité contaminés par le trop haut niveau de radioactivité de l’eau dans la centrale de Fukushima

La NRA (Nuclear Regulation Authority) a révélé au cours de sa réunion de surveillance de la mer du 27 janvier 2014 qu’à l’intérieur de la centrale de Fukushima certains instruments de mesure de la radioactivité sont contaminés.

Ceci parce que les échantillons d’eau radioactive mesurés le sont beaucoup trop. Depuis lors, ces instruments indiquent la présence de césium même en l’absence de tout échantillon.
La crédibilité de leurs relevés est plutôt remise en cause Tepco affirme qu’ils ne peuvent pas modifier les mesures effectuées jusqu’ici.

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.
