Cesium-134/137 density in tapwater is higher in Tokyo than Miyagi prefecture, where is next to Fukushima prefecture, according to NRA (Nuclear Regulation Authority).


On 4/30/2014, NRA reported the radioactivity level in drinking water by prefecture from January to March 2014.

From this report, Cs-134/137 density was 0.00222 Bq/Kg in Miyagi prefecture. However it was 0.00262 Bq/Kg in Tokyo.

The reading of Fukushima prefecture was 0.00276 Bq/Kg.


NRA hasn’t explained the reason.

Selon la NRA (Nuclear Regulation Authority), la radioactivité en césium 134/137 des eaux du robinet de Tokyo est plus forte que dans la préfecture de Miyagi qui est voisine de celle de Fukushima .

Le 30 avril 2014, la NRA a publié, par préfecture et entre janvier et mars 2014, la radioactivité des eaux potables.
Selon ce rapport, la radioactivité en Cs 134/137 était de 0,00222 Bq/L dans la préfecture de Miyagi. Elle était de 0,00262 Bq/L dans celle de Tokyo.
Le relevé pour la préfecture de Fukushima était de .,00276 Bq/L.

La NRA n’en a donné aucune explication.

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.
