13,440,000 Bq of Cs-134/137 found leaking in Reactor 4 building / Tepco “This is not contaminated water”

1.2 t of contaminated water found leaking in Reactor 4 building, according to Tepco.

A leakage detector went off at 11:19 of 2/27/2015, however a Tepco employee couldn’t find the leakage until it went off for the second time 30 minutes after the first alert.

When it was found, it already spread in the area of 20m × 6m × 1cm.

From the sample of leaked water, they detected 11,200,000 Bq/m3 of Cs-134/137. Other nuclide density is not announced for some reason.

In total, 13,440,000 Bq of Cs-134/137 leaked out. However Tepco is insisting it is not contaminated water.

The source of the water has’t been identified.

13 440 000 Bq de césium 134/137 fuient du réacteur 4 / Tepco : “Ce n’est pas de l’eau contaminée”


Selon Tepco, ils ont trouvé 1,2 T d’eau extrêmement radioactive fuyant du bâtiment du réacteur 4.

Un détecteur de fuite s’était déclenché le 27 février 2015 à 11:19, néanmoins l’employé de Tepco n’a pas pu trouver la fuite jusqu’à ce qu’il se déclenche une seconde fois 30 minutes après la première alerte.
Lorsqu’ils l’ont trouvée, elle s’étendait déjà sur une surface de 20 × 6 m et sur 1 cm d’épaisseur.
Ils ont relevé 11,2 millions de Bq/m³ de Cs 134/137 dans un échantillon de cette eau. La radioactivité des autres nucléides n’est pas communiquée.
Au total, 13 440 000 Bq de Cs 134/137 ont fuit. Néanmoins, Tepco insiste à dire que ce n’est pas de l’eau contaminée.
L’origine de la fuite n’a pas été trouvée.
