Tepco “We are going to disclose ALL the contamination data from now on”

On 3/6/2015, Tepco announced their new disclosure policy on contamination data.

According to their new policy, Tepco is supposed to publish all the radiation data of water and dust that directly affect the environment in principle and expects Japanese and international experts to check the data.

Having their latest concealment covered by international media, Nuclear Reform Monitoring Committee has been requesting Tepco to improve their disclosure policy. (cf, 29,400,000 Bq/m3 of Cs-134/137 from water on the roof of Reactor 2 / kept flowing to the Pacific for 4 years [URL])

However, a member of committee, Sudo is also Tepco’s chairman of board of directors.

Tepco : “A partir de maintenant nous allons publier TOUTES les données de radioactivité”


Le 6 mars 2015, Tepco annonce sa nouvelle politique sur la publication des données de radioactivité.

Selon leur nouvelle politique, Tepco va soi-disant publier toutes les données de radioactivité dans l’eau et les poussières qui, en principe, impactent directement l’environnement et attendent que les experts japonais et internationaux les vérifient.

Le Nuclear Reform Monitoring Committee (=Commission de gestion de la réforme du nucléaire) a demandé à Tepco d’améliorer leur politique de publication après que leurs dernières censures aient été révélées par la presse internationale. (cf. L’eau du toit du réacteur 2 – à 29,4 millions de Bq/m³ de Cs 134/137 – s’écoule dans le Pacifique depuis 4 ans)

Ceci dit, M. Sudo, le président du conseil de direction de Tepco, est également membre de cette commission.


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.
