Contaminated water crisis Sea contamination

[Column] Groundwater is possibly 65cm underground already – Press needs to demand Tepco data

The most urging issue in Fukushima nuclear plant is the rising groundwater level on seaside of reactor2. Tepco stated they are going to pump it up from this weekend but

Contaminated water crisis

Reactor3 seawater tunnel layout drawings differ from Tepco’s maps

High level of radioactive material is detected on the seaside of reactor3 as well. (cf, 180,000 Bq/m3 of all β including Sr-90 detected at 4m from the sea without impervious

Contaminated water crisis

Tepco to shut down extremely contaminated trench by freezing water / “New attempt without example”

Extremely high level of radioactive material is measured from retained water in the facility called “Trench”. (cf, 8,700,000,000 Bq/m3 Tritium detected from seaside trench water of reactor2 [URL]) The trench

[Column] The reason why I like nuclear

  I’m aware that I’m walking on the thin line. Some people kindly appreciate my work, but some people really hate me whatever the reason is. About 3 or 4

[Column] Possibility of seawater coming up to the plant side

High level of radiation is measured from groundwater and seawater. Last week, the American media reported about the possibility of contamination flowing to the sea. Probably it’s not the possibility.

Contaminated water crisis Environmental contamination

Contaminated groundwater may not only flow to the sea but also marine underground

High level of Tritium and Strontium-90 are measured from groundwater in Fukushima nuclear plant. It is suspected that the contaminated groundwater may be flowing to the sea, but possibly it’s

290,000,000 Bq/m3 of Tritium in the first analysis of the new boring at 38 m from the sea / Sr-90 “Under analysis”

On 7/13/2013, Fukushima Diary reported “92,000,000 Bq/m3 of all β nuclides detected from the new boring at 38 m from the sea [URL]” In this new boring at 38m from

Contaminated water crisis

92,000,000 Bq/m3 of all β nuclides detected from the new boring at 38 m from the sea

According to Tepco, high level of all β nuclides (such as Strontium-90) were detected from the new boring. The reading was 92,000,000 Bq/m3. Tepco hasn’t tested a sample from this

Contaminated water crisis

Former Fukushima worker, “Chemical injection doesn’t solve groundwater contamination problem”

Having measured extremely high level of Tritium from groundwater, Tepco is making additional borings for more detailed analysis. (cf, 600,000,000 Bq/m3 of Tritium from groundwater, Tepco doesn’t analyze the groundwater
