These pictures were apparently taken Sept. 1. They show dark-colored radioactively contaminated water flowing onto the Fukushima beach. This is only one of the exit points of contamination from the Daiichi plant.
From Fukushima Diary, [Breaking] 4 more leakages found from the tanks / Max as 1.8 Sv/h… According to Tepco, they found 4 more leakages of the contaminated water tanks. 2 of the leakages are the same locations as where they detected 70 ~ 100 mSv/h on 8/22/2013… However, the radiation levels jumped up from 100 mSv/h to 1,800 mSv/h and from 70 mSv/h to 220 mSv/h (γ & β).
Tritium level in groundwater jumped up 1.8 times much in 2 weeks near reactor1… The Tritium density was 23,000,000 Bq/m3 on 8/8/2013. It was increased to be 42,000,000 Bq/m3 on 8/22/2013.
Another Fukushima worker hospitalized for emergency
High level of Cs-134/137 detected on the top of reactor3 again / Spread by the wind… Cs-134 density was 8.1×10^3 Bq/m3, Cs-137 density was 1.7×10^4 Bq/m3.
Groundwater reached the ground surface → Tepco “We won’t use the boring anymore”… According to Tepco, the groundwater already reached the surface of the ground on 8/27/2013.
The reached water was the mixture of groundwater and the chemical material injected to underground, which will become the impervious wall.
