Decontamination soil bags are already starting to be torn in Fukushima

↑ From a Twitter post of a Fukushima citizen. He said, “The authorities came to check the radiation levels every few days for 3 times in total, but the readings went up every time they measured. They removed the soil again from where the radiation level significantly rose up. Some people are complaining because some of the soil bags are torn in residential district. Decontamination is just a fantasy.”

The soil removed from the ground for “decontamination” is starting to break out of the bags in Fukushima.

Environmental NPO staff leaks, the bags are severely deteriorated already because of putrefaction gas from the soil and also the sprout from the plants included with the soil.

The bags are the normal “Flexible container bag”, but there are 140,000 bags in approx. 600 temporary storage areas in Fukushima prefecture. One bag is 1m × 1m, weighs 1 ~ 1.5 t.


Originally, the bags are supposed to last only 3 ~ 5 years.

The government of Japan has not announced any measures to properly preserve the increasing soil from decontamination.

A Fukushima, les sacs de sol raclé de la décontamination sont déjà déchirés


↑ Selon un tweet d’un habitant de Fukushima. Il déclare : “Les autorités venaient contrôler le niveau de le radioactivité à quelques jours d’intervalle, ils sont venus 3 fois en tout mais les relevés augmentaient à chaque mesure. Ils ont encore raclé le sol partout où la radioactivité augmentait sérieusement. Certains se plaignent parce qu’une partie des sacs de sol raclé sont sont déchirés et dans une zone d’habitation. La décontamination est seulement un fantasme.”

Les sols raclés par la “décontamination” commencent à sortir de leurs sacs dans Fukushima.
Une organisation à but non lucratif laisse fuiter que les sacs sont déjà grandement détériores à cause des gaz issus des putréfactions du sol et aussi par les pousses des plantules dont les graines étaient dedans.
Ces sacs sont les classiques “sacs conteneurs souples” mais il y en a 140 000 répartis sur environ 600 aires de stockages provisoires dans la préfecture de Fukushima. Chaque sac est un cube de 1m de côté et pèse entre 1 et 1,5 T.

Les sacs sont supposés au départ ne servir que 3 à 5 ans.
Le gouvernement japonais n’a annoncé aucune disposition pour protéger correctement les sols raclés par la décontamination, en constante augmentation.

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.
