8,000 Bq/Kg of Cs-134/137 from vacuum dust collected in the last week of 2015
Following up this article.. 5,600 Bq/Kg of Cs-134/137 from vacuum cleaner dust accumulated from this September in Iwaki city [URL]
On 1/8/2016, the same person posted on Twitter that 7,993 Bq/Kg of Cesium-134/137 was measured even after the entire cleaning of the house.
After cleaning the entire house to detect 5,600 Bq/Kg of Cs-134/137 from the dust on 12/20/2015, the person cleaned the house again. 7,993 Bq/Kg of Cs-134/137 was measured in the dust collected during this second enter cleaning, which suggests radioactive material is still newly accumulated in a house.
The photo attached below is the monitor screen of the analysis. It was captured only 10 seconds after the analysis started but Cs-137 was already detected.
Le 8 janvier 2016, cette même personne a publié sur Twitter avoir relevé 7993 Bq/kg de césium 134/137 même après deux nettoyages successifs complets de sa maison.
Le 20 décembre 2015, après avoir nettoyé toute la maison puis relevé 5600 Bq/kg de Cs 134/137 dans les poussières, cette personne l’a à nouveau entièrement nettoyée. À l’issue de ce second nettoyage complet les poussières étaient même à 7993 Bq/kg de Cs 134/137, ce qui laisse penser que la radioactivité s’accumule en permanence dans la maison.
La photo ci-dessous montre l’écran du compteur pendant l’analyse. Elle a été prise 10 secondes seulement après le début de la mesure et du Cs 137 était déjà détecté.
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.
