All β nuclide density spiked 32 times much in groundwater of Fukushima plant

All β nuclide density of groundwater jumped up 32 times much on 8/27/2014, according to Tepco.

All β nuclide includes Strontium-90.

It was 2,600,000 Bq/m3 on 8/26/2014, but rose to be 83,000,000 Bq/m3 on 8/27/2014. The sample was taken about 25m North of the tank area called “H4”, where experienced the severe leakage in the summer of 2013.


The specific reason of this spike is not identified. Tepco is commenting it was due to the rainfall.

La radioactivité β des eaux souterraines de la centrale de Fukushima multipliée par 32


Selon Tepco, la radioactivité β des eaux souterraines s’est multipliée par 32 le 27 août 2014.

La radioactivité β inclus le strontium 90.
Elle était de 2 600 000 (2,6 millions de) Bq/m³ le 26 août 2014 et elle est passée à 83 000 000 (83 millions de) Bq/m³ le 27 août 2014. L’échantillon a été pris à environ 25 m au nord de la zone de citernes dite “H4”, celle qui a connu les fuites graves de l’été 2013.

La raison de ce saut n’est pas établie. Tepco déclare que c’est à cause de la pluie.

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.
