Radioactivity level spikes 6,500 times at Fukushima well

Radioactivity levels in a well near a storage tank at the Fukushima nuclear power plant in Japan have risen immensely on Thursday, the plant’s operator has reported.

Officials of the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) said on Friday they detected 400,000 becquerels per liter of beta ray-emitting radioactive substances – including strontium – at the site, a level 6,500 times higher than readings taken on Wednesday, NHK World reported.

The storage tank leaked over 300 tons of contaminated water in August, some of which is believed to have found its way into the sea through a ditch.

The well in question is about 10 meters from the tank and was dug to gauge leakage.

TEPCO said the findings show that radioactive substances like strontium have reached the groundwater. High levels of tritium, which transfers much easier in water than strontium, had already been detected.

Officials at TEPCO said they will remove any contaminated soil around the storage tank in an effort to monitor radioactivity levels of the water around the well.

The news comes after it has been reported a powerful typhoon which swept through Japan led to highly radioactive water near the crippled nuclear power plant being released into a nearby drainage ditch, increasing the risk of it flowing into the sea.

On Wednesday TEPCO said it had detected high levels of radiation in a ditch leading to the Pacific Ocean, and that it suspected heavy rains had lifted contaminated soil.

    Continued Thanks MR for offering alternative information that the mainstream media won’t publish.

    Small wonder that blogs such as your are so vital to staying genuinely informed….

    Thanks MR!


    • Thanks again for your kind words, Rick! Here’s a few sites you might want to check out: Fukushima Update , Fukushima Diary, SimplyInfo

        Thanks MR, these sites are a watershed of info.

        Remarkable how the Japanese are fumbling along….It can’t just be them with all the “international” support they seem to be getting……..

        And now that it is apparent radioactive evidence is showing up in US Pacific coast seaweed, any idea how much longer the MSM can keep it hidden?

        Finally, might this be the “tipping point” to where the incompetence (or intent) at high levels begins to seep into the conscious aspect of the general populations mind?

        From my own experience i have found it exceptionally challenging to get beyond “just below the surface” understanding. But I do keep trying. There is no other hope but to find REAL answers, whether they fit my paradigm or not…..

        The journey continues…Thanks MR!!


        • Welcome! From my layman’s perspective, I don’t think any of the so called ‘experts’ have any idea of just how bad Fukushima is going to get or have any idea on how to go about resolving it. We’re in uncharted waters, so to speak. Unfortunately, many of America’s aging reactors are of the same General Electric design.


  2. Except for your posts I am seeing nothing in the general news about this world wide catastrophe. That is astonishing.You have to google it specifically to get news. Appreciate these updates.
