Fukushima fishery cooperative to let Tepco and the government explain highly contaminated water discharge plan

On 8/25/2014, Fukushima fishery cooperative decided to allow Tepco and the government of Japan give explanation about highly contaminated water discharge plan. (cf, Tepco to pump up highly contaminated groundwater for potential discharge today / Drainage plan submitted to NRA [URL])


In general environmental pollution issues of Japan, letting the government or authorities give public explanation means partially granting an approval.


The potentially discharged water is pumped up beside the reactor buildings, which is way more contaminated than bypass water.

Tepco states they are going to purify the water to reduce radioactive contamination to be 1 / 1,000 ~ 10,000, but Tritium cannot be removed at all.

La coopérative de pêche de Fukushima va laisser Tepco expliquer son plan de déversement des eaux extrêmement radioactives


Le 25 août 2014, la cooperative de pêche de Fukushima a décidé d’autoriser Tepco et le gouvernement japonais à donner leurs explications sur leur plan de déversement d’eaux extrêmement radioactives. (cf. Aujourd’hui, Tepco va pomper des eaux souterraines extrêmement radioactives pour les déverser en mer / plan d’évacuation soumis à la NRA)

En général sur les problèmes de pollution de l’environnement au Japon, laisser le gouvernement ou les autorités locales donner des explications publiques signifie donner partiellement son approbation.

Les eaux potentiellement déversées sont celles pompées à côté des bâtiments des réacteurs, elles sont encore bien plus radioactives que celles de la dérivation.
Tepco affirme qu’ils vont les purifier pour réduire la contamination radioactive dans un rapport de 1 pour 1 000 à 10 000 mais le tritium ne peut pas en être retiré.

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.
