TEPCO ordered to drain contaminated tunnel water
100Bq/kg in FOOD by the Diet member who got cut off due to “not wanting to make people unhappy while watching tv, or else the people who sell advertising space would lose money” was thanks to JuneBloke here on YT (thankyou for that translation)
BTW, I hope you noticed that the 100Bq/Kg limit is considered Radioactive Waste!!!!!!!
One third of disaster rebuilding funds unused
Fukushima steps up tainted water monitoring
The government of Fukushima Prefecture in northeastern Japan has stepped up monitoring of seawater around the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.
The prefecture took the move after the plant’s operator, Tokyo Electric Power Company, admitted last week that groundwater contaminated with radioactive substances was leaking into the sea.
The government increased the number of sampling sites from 2 to 6 and monitoring frequency from once every 3 months to every month.
About 185 liters of seawater is to be sampled at each of 6 points from the plant’s port to 3.5 kilometers offshore to analyze levels of 4 radioactive substances, including cesium and tritium.
A ship of the prefecture left a port in Iwaki City, south of the plant, for monitoring on Wednesday…

Official reveals contamination levels at Fukushima plant are likely higher outside reactor units than inside — ‘Serious threat’ if trenches leak a large amount of water
‘Alarm bells’ over state of Fukushima plant — Official: Gov’t will investigate how radioactive contamination is impacting life in Pacific Ocean; “Problems… are more complicated than (we) initially thought”
Gov’t: Extremely radioactive tunnels at Fukushima must be drained — Contamination is from melted fuel — Nuclear material going through gravel and into ocean?
Japan gov’t intervening at Fukushima nuclear plant — Will take over measuring radiation levels — Top official “questioned accuracy of Tepco’s data on contamination”
Fukushima Daiichi has “contaminated the biggest body of water on the planet” — Radioactive leaks to harm marine and human life — Whole Pacific Ocean likely to have cesium levels 5-10 times higher than at peak of nuclear bomb tests
Fire that shut down U.S. nuclear reactor released “potentially toxic gas or asphyxiant or flammable gas that could impact plant operation” #Callaway
Fukushima Daiichi — “It is simply too big for one company to handle”
Emergency declared at U.S. nuclear plant: Fire #Callaway
Tepco: Extremely radioactive water from trench is leaking directly into groundwater and going into ocean
Extremely contaminated water is seeping into Pacific Ocean from trench under Fukushima Reactor No. 2 turbine building
Extreme contamination found in trench at Fukushima plant — Cesium over 2 billion Bq/liter; Millions of times above limit — Tepco ‘trying’ to stop it leaking into ocean — ‘Probably’ from melted reactor core
Gas is likely leaking from containment vessel of Fukushima Reactor No. 3 — “It was observed as the steam”
Tepco Advisor Blasts Tepco: “You do not know what you’re doing” — Japan Times: Time for gov’t to take over at Fukushima Daiichi?
Japan Gov’t: It’s “inevitable” that Fukushima radioactive water will be dumped in Pacific Ocean — “Tepco has no choice”
