20 terabecquerels of radioactive materials flowed out to Pacific

Tokyo Electric Power Co. said Saturday that 250 tons of water tainted with about 20 terabecquerels of radioactive substances leaked into the Pacific Ocean from a pit near the seawater intake for the No. 3 reactor at the troubled F**ushima No. 1 plant earlier this month.

While the figure is far lower than the 4,700 terabecquerels released near the No. 2 reactor in April, it is still about 100 times the permissible level, according to Tepco.

At the time, the water was registering 9.8 terabecquerels of cesium-137, 9.3 terabecquerels of cesium-134 and 0.85 terabecquerels of iodine-131.

The leak is believed to have started at around 2 a.m. May 10 and was stopped at 7 p.m. May 11, Tepco said. The amount of water that escaped in that 41-hour period totaled 250 tons, it said.

The leakage of tainted water raised the concentration of radioactive substances in the port of the power plant but did not significantly change the level beyond it, the utility said.

The leak was reported to the Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency

Tokyo Electric Announces Change of President, Report Record Loss


Embattled Tokyo Electric Power Co. <9501> on Friday reported a record group net loss of over 1.2 trillion yen for fiscal 2010 while announcing the resignation of President Masataka Shimizu on June 28 over the ongoing crisis at its F**ushima No. 1 nuclear power station.
   The net loss in the year that ended in March stood at 1,247,348 million yen, the biggest annual loss incurred ever by a nonfinancial Japanese company. Behind the hefty loss were massive costs stemming from the worst nuclear disaster in Japan.
   Tokyo Electric Power booked special losses of 1,077.5 billion yen mainly over the crisis at the plant in F**ushima Prefecture, northeastern Japan, which was damaged by the March 11 earthquake and tsunami. The plant, which has six reactors, continues releasing radioactive substances into the environment due to the disaster damage.
   In line with the dismal business results, the company will skip term-end dividends. Annual payout will total 30 yen per share, which was paid as interim dividends.
   The company did not unveil earnings estimates for fiscal 2011 as it remains to be seen when the nuclear crisis will be brought under control.

Thank you for the comment. 


Now we are seeing the situation that lots of hidden (or better say true?  nah...) data started to be come out.  We are very confused about the difference in data between the ones that our government discloses and the ones that  other parties such as Tepco disclose.  The point is... yes, as you mentioned, nobody knows whether or not those sources who tells the truth. The news we are seein ghere included.


We are surprised to know the data and information that was supposed to be disclosed for us long before.

More like shocked and we are left in disbilief.


Thinking about envioroment and the inpact on humanity and wildlife in the sea and on land, I personally am in despair and sorrow....


Arigato so much for sharing.  I will keep trying to look for the news that is at least trustworthy.  Although, I am not entirely sure of the honesty and/or accuracy of data source.

20 terabecquerels  - can it be said 'tintedof radioactive substances ' or better say: 'loaded with of radioactive substances' ?  How much alltogether in accumulation since beginning? 


The news do not report it.
