17,000 Bq/Kg of Cs-134/137 from soil of a public drinking fountain in Yaita city Tochigi


A Japanese citizen posted on Twitter his radiation analysis result to measure 17,000 Bq/Kg of Cesium-134/137.

The sampling date was 6/17/2014. It was soil taken from a public drinking fountain of Happo-gahara parking lot (The picture and map are attached below) in Yaita city Tochigi.

Cs-134 density was 4,221 Bq/Kg, Cs-137 density was 12,353 Bq/Kg (16,574 Bq/Kg in total).

It is not clear if the soil could have been mixed with water, but still extremely high level of radioactive material is found in Kanto area.

17 000 Bq/kg de Cs-134/137 au sol d’une fontaine d’eau potable de la commune de Yaita, à Tochigi


Un japonais a publié sur Twitter les résultats de son analyse de la radioactivité où il trouve 17 000 Bq/kg de césium 134/137.
La date de l’échantillon est le 17 juin 2014. Il s’agit du sol au pied d’une fontaine publique d’eau potable sur le parking de Happo-gahara (photo et carte ci-dessous) dans la commune de Yaita de la préfecture de Tochigi.
La radioactivité en césium 134 était de 4 221 Bq/kg, celle du Cs 137 de 12 353 Bq/kg (soit 16 574 Bq/kg au total).
Il n’est pas évident de savoir si le sol a été mélangé avec l’eau mais on trouve toujours de très fortes radioactivités dans la région de Kanto.

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.
