Tepco “5,000,000,000 Bq/m3 of Sr-90 detection was OUT OF CONCERN, so we didn’t announce it”

Following up this article.. Tepco’s spokesman “I have distrust in Tepco itself for not announcing the wrong analysis for this long” [URL]


The reason why Tepco didn’t announce that they measured 5,000,000,000 Bq/m3 of strontium-90 from groundwater was because it was out of concern.

Tepco’s spokesman stated that in the press conference of 2/17/2014.


They obtained the analysis result by September of 2013. However, they didn’t release the report, which was supposed to be because they are investigating the possible mis-analysis. After all, this analysis was not wrong.

Next month, in October, NRA (Nuclear Regulation Authority) came to Fukushima laboratories to inspect their analysis. However Tepco still didn’t report about the extremely high level of Strontium-90. NRA was requesting Tepco to disclose even though they didn’t verify the possible mis-analysis.


It can be observed that Tepco conceals every important fact whoever pressures them. They might be concealing other significant facts even right now.





Downplay it in the beginning, and quietly add more information so nobody notices it. All for not letting the cattle escape. This is their strategy.



Tepco :  “Détecter 5 milliards de Bq/m³ de strontium 90 était TROP INQUIÉTANT, alors on ne l’a pas dit”

La raison pour laquelle Tepco n’a pas annoncé qu’ils avaient relevé  5 000 000 000 (5 milliards de) Bq/m³ de strontium 90 dans les eaux souterraines est parce que c’était trop inquiétant.
Le porte-parole de Tepco l’a affirmé au cours de la conférence de presse du 17 février 2014.

Ils avaient eu les résultats des analyses en septembre 2013. Or, ils n’ont pas publié le rapport, soi-disant parce qu’ils recherchaient une possible erreur d’analyse. Au final, cette analyse n’était pas fausse.
Le mois suivant, en octobre, la NRA (Nuclear Regulation Authority) est venue dans les laboratoires de Fukushima pour contrôler leurs analyses. Néanmoins, Tepco n’a toujours rien rapporté de cette radioactivité extrêmement élevée en strontium 90. La NRA a exigé que Tepco publie même s’ils n’avaient pas pu contrôler d’éventuelles erreurs d’analyses.

On peut constater que Tepco censure chaque fait important quelles que soient les pressions sur eux. Ils doivent censurer d’autres faits importants en ce moment même.


Minimiser les choses au départ et ajouter l’information petit à petit pour que personne ne la remarque. Tout faire pour que le troupeau ne s’échappe pas. C’est leur stratégie.

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.
