Shizuoka prefecture to quit radiation monitoring of school lunch in 3 cities
A big thumbs up for potrblog.
"We are now running OUTDOOR AND INDOOR "pancake" Geiger Counters
Both units are measuring ambient ALPHA, BETA, & GAMMA radiation"
Do you think we'll ever see the results, or will this be like those "sniffing planes" we never heard from?
“Radiation epidemic” killing So. California sea lions? Gov’t experts now checking animals for contamination from Fukushima Daiichi"
Ok some deceptive releases from Tepco [What else is new?]
"Water Leak from the Underground Reservoir No.2 in Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station"
So this is one of those new inground pools for just "hot" water, they dug.
We are transferring the water from the reservoir No. 1 to No.2 using the pump and the four temporary pumps. To switch the pump to the reservoir No.6,
we will stop the pump temporarily. We continue transferring the water using the temporary pumps to the reservoir No.1.
And later in the day....
"To switch the pump to the reservoir No.6, we stopped the pump at 3:33 pm. At 4:10 pm, we restarted the pump and transferring the water in the
reservoir No.2 to No.6.
At 4:30 pm, we conducted an on-site survey and confirmed that there is no abnormality such as leakage on the transferring line."
Great so the lines aren't leaking. The pool is right? Otherwise, why are they draining it?
Also, with all above ground tanks full, and this inground pool leaking, where is all the water they are pumping now going?
Straight out to sea?
Some explaining from our bud EX-SKF
"And there is a possibility that instead of 710 billion becquerels of all beta in the water there may be 35 trillion becquerels of all beta."
"At least I sort of figured out the last question. The in-the-ground storage, where the leakage occurred, was not supposed to be used for storing the
waste water after the Reverse Osmosis (desalination) treatment with high salt content and high beta nuclides. But the multi-nuclide removal system
ALPS couldn't start as planned (September last year; TEPCO is now doing the hot trial run), the water treated by SARRY or Kurion's system (cesium
removal) had to be stored somewhere to wait for the treatment by ALPS. So, this water is stored in the tanks made for the post-RO waste water. So, for
the post-RO waste water, they started to use in-the-ground storage (there are 7 of them) in early February this year, which was originally meant for
post-ALPS treatment water."
"TEPCO dug up  locations in the Fukushima I Nuke Plant compound to create in-the-ground water storage, and has started to use them on February 1,
2013. Total capacity of these 7 storage locations is 58,000 cubic meters (tonnes)."
"There is also confusing information as to how full these in-the-ground storage locations already are.
BUT WAIT, THAT MAY BE MUCH, MUCH MORE BECQUERELS.
Why? Because the number TEPCO used to calculate the amount of radioactive materials in the leaked water was from the water taken from the leak
detection hole in the bottom protection layer, and NOT the waste water in the storage."
"So, how many becquerels of all beta does the waste water in the storage have?
Asahi Shinbun article which I consulted did say "290,000 Bq/cm3 strontium" in the water in the storage, and that's the number reported by TEPCO on
March 6, 2013 as the amount of all beta in the waste water after the Reverse Osmosis treatment. Again, that is the waste water being stored in the
holes in the ground with several layers of sheets...
Using that number, 290,000 Bq/cm3, instead of 5,838 Bq/cm3, there could be nearly 35 trillion becquerels of all beta in 120 tonnes of the leaked waste
In the press conference on April 6, TEPCO didn't disclose the radioactivity of the stored waste water, and none of the reporters at the press
conference seems to have asked about it.
I'll bet it froze and broke.
