A Total Nightmare: 900 MILLION Bq/m3 In Fukushima Daiichi Groundwater

[Nightmare] 900,000,000 Bq/m3 of all β detected from groundwater on the east side of reactor2 (Fukushima Diary, July 5,  2013):

Having measured the significantly high level of Tritium from groundwater on the east side of reactor2, Tepco made additonal borings and is investigating furthermore.

On 7/3/2013, Fukushima Diary reported they detected 4,300,000 Bq/m3 of all β at 6m from the sea.

(cf, All β nuclide level increased to be 4,300,000 Bq/m3 at 6m from the sea, “1.4 times much as 3 days ago” [URL])

On 7/5/2013, they measured 900,000,000 Bq/m3 of all β from the groundwater. The sample was collected from another boring next to the one where they detected 4,300,000 Bq/m3.

All β nuclides contain Strontium-90 but the specific readins is not announced. This is the worst reading of groundwater contamination that Tepco has ever published.

  1. Thank you so much for staying on this story the mainstream lame media wants buried. Is there a site where one can go to understand better what these numbers mean?
    Thank you,
