Tepco holds 40,000 past contaminated water samples / Too radioactive to dump

Following up this article.. Leaked all β of “300m3 leakage accident” was also underestimated / INES level might be increased [URL]


Tepco holds approx. 40,000 samples of highly contaminated water.

Currently Tepco is planning to re-analyze the past samples for the accurate results. However actually Tepco hold too much samples, it is estimated not to complete the re-analysis shortly.

Tepco is supposed to dispose of the samples about 3 month after the analysis, but in reality, they cannot even dispose of them because the radioactive density is too high.





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 garde 40 000 vieux échantillons d’eau radioactive : trop radioactif pour le jeter

Tepco conserve environ 40 000 échantillons d’eau extrêmement radioactive.
Tepco prévoit actuellement de ré-analyser les vieux échantillons pour en avoir des résultats fiables. Néanmoins, Tepco conserve en réalité trop d’échantillons, ils estiment qu’ils ne peuvent pas finir ces ré-analyses rapidement.
Tepco est supposée ne conserver ses échantillons qu’environ 3 mois après leur analyse mais en réalité ils ne peuvent pas les jeter parce que leur radioactivité est trop forte.


Le minimiser au début et ajouter tranquillement de nouvelles information pour que personne ne le remarque. Tout 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.
