Tepco “There may be multiple sources of groundwater contamination”

There may be multiple sources of groundwater contamination, Tepco’s vice president Aizawa commented in the press conference of 3/26/2014.


Tepco has measured high level of contamination in groundwater near the seaside area, and it’s been increasing at some boring holes.

They have been commenting that it is simply affected by the leakage accident in 2011.


It is not clear what the vice president specifically mentioned, but Tepco admitted by this statement that the state of underground of the plant area is still unknown.





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 : “Il pourrait y avoir de multiples sources de contamination souterraine”


Le vice-président de Tepco, M. Aizawa, a déclaré au cours de la conférence de presse du 26 mars 2014 qu’il pourrait y avoir plusieurs sources de contamination souterraine.

Tepco a relevé une très forte radioactivité dans les eaux souterraines proches de la zone maritime et elle a augmenté dans certains puits de forage.
Ils déclaraient jusque-là que c’était seulement dû aux fuites accidentelles de 2011.

Le vice-président n’a pas été très précis dans sa déclaration mais par cette déclaration Tepco a reconnu que la situation du sous-sol de la centrale est toujours inconnue.


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.
