This might explain the leaking. The pool liners for these radioactive ponds are thiner than the tarps I put over my firewood. Like garbage bags.

“The underground storage tank–60 meters long, 53 meters wide and 6 meters deep–is lined with an outer 6.4 millimeter-thick layer of clay, and topped by two layers of polyethylene sheets, each 1.5 millimeters thick.”

This would be a total of 3 mil plastic. Other reports mentioned there might be 3 layers of plastic sheet used, that would only make it 4.5 mil thick.

For some contrast trash bags used to line trash cans are frequently 1.5 mil or thicker.

Liner used for koi ponds or commercial lakes is 20 mil thick.

Other koi pond liners found that are also cited as being suitable for some types of industrial ponds is 40 mil thick.

So the question is who thought this was appropriate and who approved this design using was equaled trash bag plastic.

My guess is the bean counters who had to approve the expenditure and keep costs down no matter what. If an engineer did sign off on this he would have to be one of the most ignorant engineers on the face of the earth, or the aforementioned bean counters were twisting his arm behind his back.

This don't look good...

Welcome Jimmyx. I love tuna, but don't eat it anymore. Very worried about my kids too. Why the hell an international force hasn't descended on Fuku is beyond comprehension.

Last night I did 10 tests between 10 pm and 2 am. none were lower than 0.79 or about 250 cpm. This one got the cigar.

Another garbage bag lined pool is leaking.
So that's inground pools 1, 2, and 3, so far.

Butt-faced half-wits bowing and tap-dancing. Just let me stand over goat breath with a sword!
So they're all leaking.

"According to TEPCO, the water between the 3-layer waterproof sheets was tested in the morning of April 9, and found 10,000 becquerels/cm3 of radioactive materials"
Maybe we'll see them try Gas tank sealer next?
That means 10,000 radioactive strikes per cubic centemeter [A sugar cube], per second.
"Meanwhile, the Nuclear Regulatory Authority met in the morning of April 10 to discuss the leak problem, but the meeting lasted for only 30 minutes, as there is no effective way to deal with the leak. "

Sort of like bailing out a sinking rowboat with a cup.

The only countermeasure: Tepco pumping up leaked water to return to the crippled reservoirs.

In soil, the PAGs allow long-term public exposure to radiation in amounts as high as 2,000 millirems. This would, in effect, increase a longstanding 1 in 10,000 person cancer rate to a rate of 1 in 23 persons exposed over a 30-year period.

Gee, really? What ever gave you that idea?
"Increasingly, experts are arguing that the plant’s operator, the Tokyo Electric Power Company, or Tepco, cannot be trusted to lead what is expected to be decades of cleanup and the decommissioning of the plant’s reactors without putting the public, and the environment, at risk."

Was ATS down again last night?

I cannot help thinking that if concrete is weakened and eventually falls apart, how can they realistically expect a small thickness of plastic to withstand the radiation in the water in those pools?

Quiz later so pay attention.... #6 pool too. So 1, 2, 3, and 6. Maybe 5, maybe 7, and their pumps leaking. And with leaky pumps they're pumping it back into leaking pools. Is this like Monty Python? lol
"Additionally, reservoir No.6, to which they transfer the water from No.1 and 2, lost 13 m3 of contaminated water according to Tepco. It is not announced where the water went."

posted on Apr, 12 2013 @ 12:54 AM

It is not announced where the water went.
... Only place it can go - seawards.

Unless of course the Japanese have new technology which makes it go "poof" into nowhere.
It seems they are punping the water from the pools which have leaks into other pools which have leaks. Real Keyston Kops stuff I reckon.

I have no explanation for this, other than the obvious... fuk. I know he's honest with his readings and he's no where near a nuke plant. Hell, he'd have to have a secret meltdown going on in his town to see these numbers.
Southern Brazil black rain today.

And then......

And the link to the 012 potrblog vid about LaNinia kicking the jet stream to the southern hemisphere.
Oh yeah, the sunflowers in his garden look really strange as well.

"Kill nuclear power before it kills us" Very good vid. Worth the time.

He's bang on about one thing. Pro-nukers are just like religious zealots. You can't reason with them.

So.....The water leaked but the radiation stayed in the pools? Aw C'mon.....

Well, well, all 7 storage pools are leaking.

They've been caught faking data again. If this pops up in French there is an "English" button on your right.

Ooops, did we forget to mention plutonium... again?.... So sorry!.... We'll get back to you.... Checks in the mail...

Radiation level outside of reservoir No.1 jumped up 14 times much within 2 days

No running away and sucking your money out from somewhere else. The new "Radioactive Curtain" is up.

Magnitude 5.2 NEAR Fuk. That should make for an interesting evening.

Seems fitting.

Tomorrow I'm bringin a kegger!

Tepco “No plant damage from M5.2″

We changed our minds, were not going to test for plutonium..... So sorry.α-nuclide-by-mistake/

Oops, did we forget to test the pipes and pools?... So sorry.

From the great comments.
