Tepco “Seaside of the reactors is getting too radioactive to work”

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



Tepco stated the seaside of reactors are getting too radioactive for the workers to build underground wall, in the working group of NRA (Nuclear Regulation Authority).


Fukushima Diary has been reporting that the radiation level is significantly increasing in the plant area because of the contaminated problem. (cf, Fukushima plant radiation increasing due to the rising contaminated groundwater / “Covering with lead plate” [URL]) Tepco is officially starting to admit the problem.


In order to stop radioactive groundwater flowing to the sea, they are building the underground wall. However between the seaside of reactor1 and 2, the radiation level is too high to continue to construction. They have to slow down the pace of construction.





Thank you for reading Fukushima Diary. Your support is the energy of my restless work.

Tepco : “Le côté mer des réacteurs devient trop radioactif pour pouvoir y travailler”
Note : Si vous êtes de la grande presse internationale, ne lisez pas ce site sans avoir préalablement pris contact avec moi.


AU cours de la réunion du groupe de travail de la NRA (Nuclear Regulation Authority), Tepco affirme que le côté mer des réacteurs devient trop radioactive pour les ouvriers qui construisent le mur souterrain.

Le Fukushima Diary avait rapporté que la radioactivité augmentait gravement dans la centrale à cause du problème de la contamination. (cf. La radioactivité augmente dans la centrale de Fukushima à cause de la montée des eaux souterraines : “Couvrir avec une plaque de plomb”) Tepco commence à le reconnaître officiellement.

Ils construisent un mur souterrain pour empêcher les eaux souterraines radioactives de s’écouler en mer. Maintenant, la radioactivité entre les côtés mer des réacteurs 1 et 2 est trop forte pour continuer cette construction. Ils doivent en ralentir le rythme.


Merci de lire le Fukushima Diary. Votre soutien est l’énergie de mon travail opiniâtre.

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.
