Tepco sprinkles over 50 m3 of contaminated water in Fukushima plant area everyday / Tepco “It’s not discharge”

Tepco sprinkles contaminated water in the plant area on a daily basis. NRA (Nuclear Regulation Authority) pointed this out on the working group meeting of 3/5/2014.


According to Tepco and NRA, the sprinkled water is the groundwater that flowed into the basement of reactor5 and 6. These two reactors are shut down but the groundwater pumping up system is still malfunctioning. Groundwater therefore automatically flows into the buildings.


Based on Tepco’s analysis, it contains 3,000,000 Bq/m3 of Tritium. For example, the sprinkled water volume on 2/25/2014 was 72m3. They also sprinkled 76m3 on 2/26/2014.

The sprinkled water is assumed to flow into the groundwater stream, and go to the sea in the end. However because it is not through the drains, Tepco states it’s not considered to be “discharge”.





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 disperse chaque jour plus de 50 m³ d’eau extrêmement radioactive dans la centrale de Fukushima / Tepco : “Ce n’est pas déverser”


Tepco disperse des eaux extrêmement radioactives de façon quotidienne dans l’enceinte de la centrale. La NRA (Nuclear Regulation Authority) l’a mis en avant au cours de la réunion du groupe de travail du 5 mars 2014.

Selon Tepco et la NRA, ces eaux dispersées sont des eaux souterraines qui ont inondé les fondations des réacteurs 5 et 6. Ces deux réacteurs sont à l’arrêt mais leur système de pompage des eaux souterraines fonctionne toujours mal. Les eaux souterraines inondent donc automatiquement les bâtiments.

Sur la base des analyses de Tepco, elles titrent à 3 000 000 (3 millions de) Bq/m³ de tritium. Par exemple, le volume d’eau dispersé le 25 février 2014 a été de 72 m³. Ils en ont aussi dispersé 76 m³ le 26 février 2014.
Les eaux dispersées sont supposées retourner dans le flot souterrain et finir en mer. Néanmoins, Tepco affirme que ce n’est pas un “déversement” parce qu’elles ne passent pas par les canalisations.


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.
