New high-radiation spots found indicating possible additional leaks

The operator of Japan's crippled Fukushima nuclear plant said on Thursday new spots of high radiation had been found near storage tanks holding highly contaminated water, raising fear of fresh leaks as the disaster goes from bad to worse.


I don't think this story is getting the attention it merits. Maybe I'm overreacting...but I mean, there's still a 12 mile exclusion zone around the facility and this radioactive water is leaking into the Pacific Ocean.

And they're saying a 40 year cleanup window is optimistic...

Leaks are "much worse than we were lead to believe"

A nuclear expert has told the BBC that he believes the current water leaks at Fukushima are much worse than the authorities have stated.

Mycle Schneider is an independent consultant who has previously advised the French and German governments.

He says water is leaking out all over the site and there are no accurate figures for radiation levels.


Some 1,000 tanks have been built to hold the water. But these are believed to be at around 85% of their capacity and every day an extra 400 tonnes of water are being added.

"The quantities of water they are dealing with are absolutely gigantic," said Mycle Schneider, who has consulted widely for a variety of organisations and countries on nuclear issues.

"What is the worse is the water leakage everywhere else - not just from the tanks. It is leaking out from the basements, it is leaking out from the cracks all over the place. Nobody can measure that.



Severity Level upgraded to 3 on a 7 point scale

In regards to the latest leak:

There have been leaks of water in the past but this one is being seen as the most serious to date, because of the volume - 300 tonnes of radioactive water, according to Tepco - and high levels of radioactivity in the water.

He said Tepco had failed to spot the leak for days - maybe weeks - despite patrols that are supposed to check each storage tank twice every day. Workers had also left a tap open in the safety barrier that surrounds the base of the leaking storage tank.

That had allowed highly toxic water to trickle away into the ground. Latest reports from the plant suggest some of it may already have reached the nearby Pacific Ocean.

A puddle of the contaminated water was emitting 100 millisieverts an hour of radiation, Kyodo news agency said earlier this week.

Masayuki Ono, general manager of Tepco, told Reuters news agency: "One hundred millisieverts per hour is equivalent to the limit for accumulated exposure over five years for nuclear workers; so it can be said that we found a radiation level strong enough to give someone a five-year dose of radiation within one hour."

I also heard that the Dry Cask spent fuel storage systems PASSED with flying colors.

They survived undamaged.

Proving that dry cask storage in Yuca Mountain would be almost 100% fool proof.

See page 12, section 3.7, last paragraph.

I guess good news only deserves TWO sentences. Nothing to see here!

You mean the nuclear waste site that was cancelled?

The one Harry Reid has been blocking since he became majority leader in the Senate? Not cancelled, just severely delayed to the point of costing millions in taxpayer money.

Yeah, that national nuclear spent fuel repository. It has to be secured by the government in just a few locations. Not scattered to the four winds and left basically unsecured. Too dangerous. Those states that have embraced this form of energy generation should have to deal with it along with the federal government. Or the federal government needs to establish a facility on securable government land that is in the safest location. Welcome, Nevada.

You know the goverment, We got to build it/pass it before we can see it if works or not.

WVisHome,

A newsclip from Russian News TV?!

These guys oversensationalize anything that is Western. They just want to make anything look as bad as Chernobyl.

While I wouldn't deny radioactive leakage is escaping the containment area, I seriously doubt that it is "hot". The thermal imaging picture you show is from August 2011. That is 5 months after the accident but probably only 2 months after the reaction was stopped.

Dumping radioactive water into the ocean is NOT something I think anyone WANTS to do but I would rather see it dumped into the ocean than allow it to penetrate ground water. The decisions that have to be made are decisions that are NOT ideal but are tradeoffs along the scale of slightly bad to devastating. I seriously doubt that the amount of radioactive waste that will be released into the ocean environment will approach the radioactive contamination due to the number of Russian/American submarines and their nuclear warheads that are lying exposed on the ocean floor.

http://www.worldnuclearreport.org/Wor ... ges_water_waste_radiation


Mr. Ebisawa, who had served NAIIC as an expert reactor engineer, estimated the amount of radioactivity that had seeped into the water that fills the basement of the reactor buildings (Unit-1, -2 and -3, as of 20 November 2012) as follows: [292]

Cesium-137:276 PBq [293] (i.e. 40 percent of the reactor core inventory)

Strontium-90:23 to 33 PBq (i.e. 4.4 to 6.3 percent of the reactor core inventory).

These are far larger amounts than those released into the atmosphere in gaseous form: for example, more than 27 times the amount of cesium-137 released into the air in the first three weeks [294], or about 2.5 to 3.3 times, depending on the estimate, the total amount released into the environment from the Chernobyl accident [295].

Reactor #4 on verge of collapse due to unstable ground

During a recent interview, Mitsuhei Murata, the former Japanese Ambassador to both Switzerland and Senegal, explained that the ground beneath the plant’s Unit 4 is gradually sinking, and that the entire structure is very likely on the verge of complete collapse.

This is highly concerning, as Unit 4 currently holds more than 1,500 spent nuclear fuel rods, and a collective 37 million curies of deadly radiation that, if released, could make much of the world completely uninhabitable. As some Natural News readers will recall, Unit 4 contains the infamous elevated cooling pool that was severely damaged following the catastrophic earthquake and tsunami that struck on March 11, 2011.
