TEPCO.. for the first time in Nuclear History are dumping irradiated water into the ocean.... Against sign Global Nuclear signing..

TEPCO: Fukushima radiation levels could exceed limits


TEPCO: Fukushima radiation levels could exceed limits
Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO), operators of the disaster-stricken Fukushima nuclear power plant, have revealed that radiation limits with the plants area and boundaries could exceed their self-imposed “safe” limit in the next few days. This is due to the power utility deciding to dump radioactive waste water from leaking underground tanks to storage facilities above-ground. The radiation level increase is directly connected to the transfer of water from underground to above-ground storage tanks...
...TEPCO had previously set a target to keep the site radiation levels at below 1 millisievert per year, but it has announced that levels – especially in the southern area of the plant – could at one point increase to 7.8 millisieverts, company officials revealed. As TEPCO has decided to transfer some 23,000 tons of polluted waterfrom leaking underground tanks to more reliable containers above ground, this will cause an increase in the radioactive level in the nuclear power plant compound.

How sad
  • no melt throughs
  • no ground water contamination (which they now are allowing themselves to pump into the oceans to save face)
  • promise not to allow irradiation to hit the ocean
  • lies about Plutonium releases, therefor a denial of core/ water pool breaches
  • radiation to rise regardless of the filtration (because they are moving highly radioactive components to temporary storage)
sry, I have to stop there.....
