TEPCO Admits To Finding Radioactive Cesium 1Km Off Coast Of Fukushima

Tyler Durden's picture

The dismal news keeps coming for the Fukushima nuclear power facility. According to NHK World, TEPCO is admitting to detecting radioactive cesium about one kilometer off shore. While the level is low, it is the secoond time radioactive substances have been found that far offshore and it is believed to be from wastewater leaking out with the groundwater. The company, reassuringly, says the leak poses no environmental risk... As if that was not enough, Bloomberg reports TEPCO also found high levels of radiation in the drainage ditches and wells at the site. Of course, this will likely be met with cries of delight by Abe who will "need to build a bigger wall" to contain the leaks and thus create a Keynesian utopia from the 'broken nuclear plant fallacy' that is ongoing.

 

Via NHK World,

Tokyo Electric Power Company says a very small amount of radioactive cesium has been detected about one kilometer off the damaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant it operates.

 

TEPCO has been analyzing seawater taken at 5 locations outside the plant's harbor. This is to monitor the spread of radioactive substances in wastewater that's believed to be seeping out with groundwater.

 

A sample taken last Friday about one kilometer offshore was found to contain 1.6 becquerels of cesium-137 per liter.

 

The level is far below the 90 becquerels-per-liter limit for releasing cesium-137 into the sea. But it is the second time the substance has been detected at this location since monitoring began in August. The previous finding was on October 8th.

 

TEPCO says it does not know why cesium has been found at that specific spot. But the company says it poses no environmental risk as the level is near the minimum detection threshold. It adds that hardly any cesium is being found elsewhere in the sea outside of the port.

 

Via Bloomberg,

Co. found 59,000 Bq/L of beta radiation levels from water taken yesterday at B-2 drainage ditch at Fukushima Dai-Ichi plant, higher than previous record of 34,000 Bq/L in Oct. 17 sample, according to an e-mailed statement from the utility.

 

Co. detects 350,000 Bq/L of tritium radiation at monitoring well “No. 1-12” near turbine buildings, according to a separate statement

 

First time to take sample from monitoring well “No.  1-12”

 

Co. found record 790,000 Bq/L of tritium radiation    near H4 storage tank area on Oct. 17

I ask the waiter where the fish comes from when ordering...they always pause and in that moment I slyly look at them and whisper..."Fukushima." They then have a look of, "what the Hell does this guy know that I don't?"

If for some reason you would want to bang that crazy chick in the vid, casually mention that your jizz is radioactive and that the reason she can't detect any particles shooting out of your balls with her Gamma-Scout is because you wear lead shielded boxers for public safety.

New World Chaos's picture

That crazy chick is the craziest thing in that basement.  What is it with Russians and their "life is cheap" mentality? I'm bored; think I'll spend a few minutes sifting through a room full of radioactive firefighting clothes, then I'll go check on the giant claw they used to fish out chunks of the reactor core.  Yup, still blazing hot as ever...

BTW, this bit of cesium they found off the coast of Fukushima is fuck-all unless they fudged it.  One liter is equivalent to one bite of a banana (an isotope of potassium is slightly radioactive).  There are much better reasons to worry about Fukushima.  This detracts from the seriousness of it.

Releasing radioactive water into the ocean....

Where is the liberal fucking outrage?

Is radioactive water a cause of global warming?

Where is Green Peace?

Where is the UN?

WTF? Goes to show you who the pussies are.

Something bad is happening and the so called environmentals are sitting on their thumbs.

'This ship can't sink!'

'She's made of lead. i assure you she can...'

WHO IS IT that authorizes these people to put 'safe limits' on radioactive exposures that seem to go up every month, assuring 'us' that there is 'NO, REASONABLE CAUSE FOR ALARM'?

I want to watch the clip again where Obama and company eat the seafood supposedly caught in the Gulf of Mexico.

Actually when you think about it you are likely to see more Olympic records set with higher levels of radiation and no shielding...

The gift that keeps on giving...FU TEPCO.  This is like some bizarre re-gifting reality show.  Emtomb or bury it, now. Include TEPCO management and the political asswipes in charge in the burial.

Bury it?

Oh, so putting a lid on a leaky container will help anything.

This shit is in the ground water and is coming back to the surface.

If enough of that wonderful mix of oxides gets together in the wrong way criticallity could occur, leading to some very dirty results.

It's a total fucking mess

Yeah there was an accident and it happened, but the least they could do is deal with it instead of fucking jerking off all day.

Israeli firm’s cameras recording Japanese nuclear core

"Security cameras installed by Israeli defense company at Fukushima plant have ability to detect presence of radioactive clouds in air."

"The Arava-based Magna BSP company, which specializes in producing and installing stereoscopic sensory and thermal imaging cameras, had been contracted to place cameras around one of the plant’s six cores – the core that has been experiencing explosions and overheating."

emersonreturn's picture

please, Tim, if you could give the link and the date on the Arava-based Magna BSP...

 

it's been stated several times that robots cannot get into the site, and i'm wondering if the cameras are reportedly still working?  and the core they were contracted to be placed around...any explanation why they singled that one out?  and what information did it report?

 

thank you

Emersonreturn, some people claim that the jews, instead of installing cameras, installed a bomb to sabotage the reactor.

How about Fukushima disaster is fake (or at least massively blown out of proportion)? I know you like Jim Stone angle for the tie-in with the yids but look deeper (to your other obsession - Hollywood). Fukushima disaster was all CGI, actors and fake news just like 9/11.

Running On Bingo Fuel's picture

Inside Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Reactors #1 – #3 the pipes (which had circulated cooling water) are broken, which caused a meltdown. This means the nuclear fuel overheated, melted, and continued to melt anything it touched. Thus it melted through the bottom of the reactor, and then through the concrete floor of the building, and sank into the ground. [...] for two and a half years TEPCO workers have been desperately pouring water into the reactor, but it is not known whether the water is actually reaching the melted fuel. [...] Only the fact that irradiated water is leaking onto the surface of the ground around the reactor is reported. But deep under the surface the ground water is also being irradiated, and the ground water flows out to sea and mixes with the seawater through sea-bottom springs. It is too late to do anything about this. [...] It’s a sad story, but this is the present situation of Japan and of Tokyo. I had loved the Japanese food and this land until the Fukushima accident occurred.

I went to Japan 2-3 months after the event (equipped with a geiger counter) and I witnessed by myself that this is all too real.  Abnormal radioactivity is present everywhere we wenet in the fukushima prefecture (and that was outside the evacuation zone).  We scanned our food before eating it as some of the stuff in our plates was found to be radioactive.  We also scanned the fields where are host grew is vegetables: there is a top layer of radioactive material everywhere on top of his field and vegetables,  The only reasonable advice we could give to him is to leave the place forever.

I couldn't reach the powerplant itself as we were stopped at a road block before we could reach it, but for sure something big happenend there.  We also withnessed the devastation caused by the tsunami and it is really easy to imagine what hit the powerplant.

Did you see the map published by Geomar in the above Scribd link. The whole Pacific is going to be contaminated by 2016.

Looks like a head fake by the Hollyweird Yids. But now they somehow sucked the stupid Germans into it.

What were the readings (alpha, beta and gamma - if possible)?

Thanks in advance!

Maxter's picture

Our reader couldn't tell apart alpha, beta and gamma.

We had spikes as high as 2 mSv/h close to the ground is isolated places.  Generaly, the readings were around the 50 microsievert mark on the ground.

Random's picture

Here's the gamma radiation charts for my location: http://meteo.nipne.ro/logger/months.html (starting May of 2011). I see no increase in the environmental gamma dose and being very concerned at the time of the accident i did my research (before the "fall-out" cloud could have possibly reached my city - this was between 11th and 17th of March 2011). Since that time (as it can be reviewed in the provided link) the gamma radiation level has stayed more or less the same (~100 nSv/h). This does not tie-in at all with the accumulation over a 2.5 years period nor with the 3 full blown meltdowns (not to mention the complete burning of the number 4 spent fuel pool). Note that the distance is irrelevant at this moment since the jet-stream has carried the "fall-out" hundreds of times around the Earth.

 

Spelling and removing the "bio" part from "bio-accumulation".

I am sure these oarfish are not caused by radioactivity from Fuckedushima. Surely these “ryugu no tsukai” are just something random. http://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2013/10/21/oarfish-or-harbingers-sea-serp...

CATALINA ISLAND (CBSLA.com) — Could the appearance of rare “sea serpents” washing ashore beaches in Southern California portend disaster?

The question comes following the discovery of the carcass of a rare 18-foot-long oarfish off the coast of Catalina Island on Oct. 13, followed by another snakelike 14-foot-long oarfish found on Oct. 18 in Oceanside.

Fishermen in Japan reported a sharp uptick in oarfish sightings in March 2010 following the massive magnitude-8.8 earthquake in Chile that same month, which marked almost exactly one year before the country was devastated by its own magnitude-8.9 quake in northeast Japan.

Oarfish, which can grow to more than 50 feet in length, are considered the longest bony fish in the world. They typically dive more than 3,000 feet deep, which makes sightings rare and has fueled various serpent legends throughout history.

According to traditional Japanese lore, oarfish rise to the water’s surface and beach themselves to warn of an impending earthquake, a notion that some scientists have speculated could be supported by the bottom-dwelling fish being more sensitive to seismic shifts....or radioactivity.
