Water at Unit Three ten thousand times more radioactive than cooling water in an operating plant.

Reactor 3 exploded violently and seems to be severely damaged. 10,000 times normal! How about a little context? What would cause the water on the floor to be 10,000 times normal radiation. Is this a "damaged" reactor or a reactor that is in full meltdown?
The three workers reached the highest level of millisieverts recorded so far, Tokyo Electric said. The two admitted to the hospital were a man in his 30s who was exposed to 180.7 millisieverts, and a man in his 20s who tested at 179.37 millisieverts. The third man, who was exposed to 173 millisieverts, did not go to the hospital, as his boots were high enough to cover his skin, Tokyo Electric said.
Micro-sieverts: 250956 μSv
Milli-sieverts: 250.956 mSv
Sieverts: 0.250956 Sv
Symptoms of acute radiation (within one day)
Some people feel nausea and loss of appetite; bone marrow, lymph nodes, spleen damaged.
Daisy, the steam generated by the reactor passes through piping to the turbine room where it causes the turbines to spin; these are connected to the generators that produce the electricity, then the steam goes through a condenser/heat exchanger where it cools enough to become water and is pumped back to the reactor; the circulation pumps used to do this also cool the reactor core during shutdown;

Forgive me for not knowing exactly how the nuclear facility is laid out -
could you tell me what they normally do in the turbine room - is that
the room where they have a lot of the controls? I take it the turbine
room is usually pretty safe from outside influences such as
water from the reactors. If I have any of this right, which I doubt
I would look for this to become a very dangerous place for any
human to be in - then what?
Aquaponics is a new type of farming which relays on the symbiosis between the plants and the fish. This means that the fish provides the plants the necessary food while the plants, by feeding on the fish's excrements clean their water, thus making their environment a "comfortable" home. Because the fish are highly sensitive on chemicals, but also because they provide the plants with all the nutrients they need, there will be no need for you to use any pesticides or fertilizers to make your plants grow bigger and stronger, thus obtaining fresh, healthy and organic veggies without too much struggle.
