The groundwater level still keeps increasing as it has been, according to Tepco.

On 12/5/2014, Tepco published the report of the groundwater levels in Reactor 2 seaside. The report shows the water levels rapidly increased from 11/25 to 11/27 due to the rainfall and are still in the continuous increasing trend until 12/4/2014.


The trend is observed at least in 4 borings to show the groundwater level is rising in the entire area.

Tepco announced the pumping well is under maintenance, which can be the cause. However the purpose is not explained. It is not announced when it is going to end either.

Selon Tepco, le niveau des eaux souterraines continue de monter comme avant.

Le 5 décembre 2014, Tepco publie un rapport sur le niveau des eaux souterraines du côté mer du réacteur 2. Ce rapport montre que le niveau est rapidement monté entre le 25 et le 27 novembre à cause de pluies et qu’il continue progressivement de monter depuis le 4 décembre 2014.

Cette tendance est constatée dans au moins 4 puits de forage, montrant que le niveau monte partout dans toute cette zone.
Tepco a déclaré que le puits de pompage est en maintenance, ce qui pourrait en être la cause. Néanmoins le but n’est toujours pas expliqué. Ils ne disent pas non plus quand ça va s’arrêter.

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.
