Record-High 10 Million Bq/Liter Of Strontium-90 & Beta Emitters In Fukushima Plant Groundwater – 1,000% More Than Tepco Has Claimed For Last 6 Months

Fukushima Plant Groundwater

Record-high 10 Million Bq/liter of strontium-90 & beta emitters finally revealed in Fukushima plant groundwater — 1,000% more than Tepco has claimed for last 6 months (ENENews, Feb 6, 2014):

Jiji Press, Feb. 6, 2014: TEPCO Corrects Last Summer’s Water Pollution Data to Record High […] Samples collected from an observation well close to the sea in early July contained a record 5 million becquerels of strontium-90 per liter of groundwater, the company said. When TEPCO announced the original data that month, the firm said the total amount of radioactive materials emitting beta particles, including strontium-90, was 900,000 becquerels […] the total amount of beta particle-emitting materials […]  are likely to be around 10 million becquerels, far higher than the previous record high of 3.1 million becquerels for the well.

Kyodo News
, Feb. 6, 2014: Record-high strontium-90 in past Fukushima plant groundwater sample — [TEPCO] said Thursday that a groundwater sample taken from a well at the site in July last year contained a record-high 5 million becquerels per liter of radioactive strontium-90.[…] TEPCO official said that “all beta radiation could have been 10 million becquerels in total.”

  1. Too bad Obama is focused on global; warming! No monitoring of the left coast.
    Too bad there is a Muslim democrat in the white house, it just cost the world the Pacific ocean.
