Press Release (Aug 20,2013)Water Leak at a Tank in the H4 area in Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station (Follow-up Information 4)

This is follow-up information regarding the water leak from a drain valve of a tank dike in the H4 area in Fukushima Daiichi NPS.
At 7:00 PM on August 19, we started collecting water in the tank dike. Water was pumped up with a temporary pump to a temporary tank, and absorbent was placed inside the dike. Water collected until around 11:00 PM on the same day is approx. 4 m3.
In addition, the nuclide analysis results of water obtained so far are as follows:
<Leakage water of the H4 area tank (sampling performed at 4:00 PM on August 19)>
Cesium-134:4.6 x 10-1 Bq/cm3
Cesium-137:1.0 x 10-2 Bq/cm3
Iodine-131:Below the detection limit value (3.1 x 10-0 Bq/cm3)
Cobalt-60:1.2 x 10-0 Bq/cm3
Manganese-54:1.9 x 10-0 Bq/cm3
Antimony-125:7.1 x 10-1 Bq/cm3
All β:8.0 x 10-4 Bq/cm3
Chloride density:5,200ppm
<Sand sedimentation pond (sampling performed at 3:10 PM on August 19)>
Cesium-134:Below the detection limit value (2.0 x 10-2 Bq/cm3)
Cesium-137:Below the detection limit value (2.6 x 10-2 Bq/cm3)
Iodine-131:Below the detection limit value (1.3 x 10-2 Bq/cm3)
Cobalt-60:Below the detection limit value (1.3 x 10-2 Bq/cm3)
All β:4.1 x 10-1 Bq/cm3
<Water sampled at side ditch in front of core warehouse (sampling performed at 3:00 PM on August 19)>
Cesium-134:Below the detection limit value (1.9 x 10-2 Bq/cm3)
Cesium-137:Below the detection limit value (2.7 x 10-2 Bq/cm3)
Iodine-131:Below the detection limit value (1.0 x 10-2 Bq/cm3)
Cobalt-60:Below the detection limit value (1.4 x 10-2 Bq/cm3)
All β:1.3 x 10-1 Bq/cm3
We will continue to analyze water sampled at side ditch in front of core warehouse today, and also will analyze seawater sampled at the location connected to this ditch today.
Further, as for soil outside the dike, we will perform removal work from today's morning.

Well, hasn't today been distracting?
1. This and;
2. 18 Children confirmed with Thyroid cancer
Both press releases on the same day. Pick your doom.
Question in the title?
Where is all that pesky Uranium and Plutonium? It can't be missing, surely, it only last several thousand years, as a half life...
Maybe the rat ate it, after it was done with the electronic systems.....

The maths US, puts it into the Trillions released, while the Aus. math puts it into the same amount but calls it Hundred's of Thousand of Billions.... but hey, who's quibbling maths when the worlds greatest scientists are 'baffled' about 'mysterious' radioactive dust on the workers there.... (lucky they wear rice suits)
