Still 690 Bq/Kg of Cs-134/137 measured from ground soil in Yamagata city / Beside a water distribution station

Still high level of Cs-134/137 is detected from the ground soil in Yamagata city, according to Yamagata university and Yamagata prefectural government.

Because Cesium-134 is detected, this is from Fukushima accident for 100%.


The highest reading was 690 Bq/kg. The sampling date 12/20/2013. The soil sample was taken from 0~5cm deep of the ground. The sampling location is approx only 30m from a water distribution station as on the map below.

252 Bq/Kg of Cs-134/137 was also measured in 5~10 cm depth.


The second highest reading was 530 Bq/kg, which were measured at 2 other locations in Yamagata city.

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.

Toujours 690 Bq/kg de césium au sol à Yamagata : à côté d’un centre de distribution d’eau


↑ Capture d’écran de la vue où les 690 Bq/kg ont été relevés au sol.

On relève toujours une forte radioactivité en Cs-134/137 dans le sol de la commune de Yamagata, selon la préfecture et l’université de Yamagata.
Ça vient forcément à 100 % de l’accident de Fukushima parce qu’on relève du césium 134.

Le record a été de 690 Bq/kg. L’échantillon est du 20 décembre 2013. L’échantillon de sol a été pris dans la couche de 0 à 5 cm de profondeur. L’endroit échantillonné est à environ 30 m seulement d’une station de distribution d’eau comme le montre la carte ci-dessous.
On a relevé aussi 252 Bq/kg de Cs-134/137 dans la couche des 5 à 10 cm de profondeur.

Le second relevé record est de 530 Bq/kg, en 2 autres endroits de la ville de Yamagata.

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.

  1. Yamagata City had voluntary evacuation.

    This is the type of event that is going to be the downfall of the pro-nuke crowd.

    Japan/TEPCO/pro-nuke, 3 years later are still being reactive to the situation. Their biggest advantage is apathy from the general public. Pro-nuke has all the support they need in the Government of Japan, they just need to keep the general populace from taking an active interest in the battle.

    We have seen that Tokyo does not care about Fukushima radiation anymore. It is all a case of not in my back yard. The Tokyo 2020 Olympic bid package specifically that there are no nuclear reactors in Tokyo.

    Japan/TEPCO has just brought radiation into the back yard of the City of Yamagata, and in doing so, have made some new enemies. They have also alerted everyone in voluntary evacuation zones that they need to check their soil. And that they may also have cause for claims for compensation against TEPCO.

    Side note: In the Bid Package for the 2020 Olympics, which was submitted in 2012, details of TEPCO’s ability to generate power were detailed. In July 2012, TEPCO was generating 5 Mw more than before the 3/11 event. That is a gain of 5 Mw above replacing the power from the Nuclear Power Stations. The Bid continues to say that TEPCO already has all power they need for the 2020 Olympics. TEPCO also has plans for an additional 3 Mw by 2015. Plans have already been made to “ensure a low-cost and stable power supply for the future.”

    There will also be over 5 Billion $USD spent in construction of Olympic Venues in the next 5 years. This does not include other infrastructure projects, roads, light rail, subway and waterside construction.

    It would be interesting to know how much labor will be required for all the projects involved, that could be useful at Fukushima.

  2. Radioactive Fallout is concentrated in low areas by rain runoff from mountains.

    Yamagata city is located in a valley and as a result has extreme temperature. In the summer the temperature rises frequently and weather is very humid. Winter in Yamagata is very cold and many areas experience snowfalls at this time.

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.
