Radiation in water leakage at Fukushima plant as high as 2011 crisis

TOKYO, July 27, 2013 Kyodo News

Tokyo Electric Power Co. said Saturday it has detected 2.35 billion becquerels of cesium per liter from water in an underground passage at the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant that is seeping into the sea, roughly the same level as seen in a contaminated water leak into the sea in April 2011 shortly after the nuclear disaster the preceding month.

The water sample taken Friday from a trench contained 750 million becquerels of cesium-134 and 1.6 billion becquerels of cesium-137 per liter, while 750 million becquerels of other radioactive substances were detected, according to TEPCO.

The trench, which is believed to be the source of the latest water leakage into the sea, is located below the No. 2 reactor turbine building.

    Thanks for the follow, all the way from Japan! Wow, I appreciate it. I am sorry about Fukushima. Nuclear power should never have been used anywhere in the world. I know they haven’t got it under control. We don’t hear much about it in NZ anymore. Keep on blogging, I’ll be back to read more. All the best from NZ, Jo.
