15 Billion Bq of Tritium flows to the Pacific every single day / Tepco under-reported 1/15 at press conference


August 31, 2014
15 Billion Bq of Tritium flows from Fukushima plant area to the sea every single day. Tepco reported it in the handout submitted to Fukushima fishery cooperative on 8/25/2014.
In the press conference of the same day, Tepco announced it was 1 Billion Bq, which is 1/15 times much as the actual amount.
It is not clear if Tepco tried to under-report it intentionally or not. Tritium cannot be removed by any of the purification systems of Tepco.
