Cs-134 / 137 density jumped up 12 times much as previous highest reading in groundwater beside Reactor 2

On 7/29/2014, Tepco announced Cesium-134 / 137 density of groundwater increased by over 12 times much as the previous highest reading.

This July, the groundwater was taken in the seaside of Reactor 2.

Last week, the highest density of All β nuclide to include Strontium-90 and Cs-134 were also measured from another boring in the same area.

(cf, Highest density of All β and Cs-134 measured from groundwater near Reactor 2 http://fukushima-diary.com/2014/07/highest-density-%CE%B2-cs-134-measured-groundwater-near-reactor-2/)

The highest reading that Tepco announced today was 116,000 Bq/m3 (Cs-134 / 137) . The previous highest reading was 9,600 Bq/m3.

Tepco is struggling to stop contaminated water spreading by building frozen water wall, however the actual contamination doesn’t seem to stop at all.
