  • *The sampling location has been changed on November 26, 2012. (Sampling is performed at approx. 1km south of the previous location.)

Sampling regarding Groundwater Bypass

As a measure to prevent contaminated water from accumulating, the groundwater bypass has begun its operation since May 2014, which pumps up groundwater on the mountain side before flowing into the buildings and drains the water into the ocean after checking its purity. The pumped up groundwater is once stored in temporary storage tanks, and then its radioactive material concentration is mesured to confirm that its quality meets the operation target.
The third-party organization also analyzes the radioactive material concentration to ensure the objectivity of the analysis result.

Monitoring regarding Water Leakage Tanks

The sampling near the South Water Outlet, at the Drainage Channel, and around tanks in the H4 area has been continued in order to monitor the impact of several leakage accidents such as the leakage from the bottom flange of the No.5 tank in the H4 area I group happened in August, 2013, the dripping from the top plate of the B-A5 tank in the B south area happened in October, 2013, and the leakage from the top plate flange of the C1 tank in the H6 area happened in February, 2014.

Analysis Results of Rainwater sprinkling Obtained Inside the Dike in the Tank Area After Treated by the Rainwater Treatment System

The rainwater accumulated inside the dike in the tank area has been sprinkled on the premises of Fukushima Daiichi NPS since May, 2014 after being purified by the desalination system (reverse osmosis membrane) etc.

Monitoring at the East Side of Unit 1-4 Turbine Buildings

Results of radioactive nuclide analysis for groundwater at the east side of Unit 1-4 Turbine Buildings and seawater at the port in order to monitor the source, the extent, and the effect of the radioactive materials in the groundwater toward the ocean.

Detailed Analysis Results of Groundwater around Unit 1-4 Buildings

Radioactive materials were detected from the accumulated water inside the pits as a result of purification test at wells (subdrain pits), which is adjacent to Unit 1-4 Buildings at Fukushima Daiichi NPS. Since there is a possibility of being affected by fallout, we installed new observation well around Unit 1-4 Buildings in order to assess the impact of fallout.

The newest data is on October 1, 2014.

Analysis Results of Underground Reservoirs

open

The groundwater sampled from the leakage detection holes by the undergounrd reservoirs and the surrounding observation holes has been analyzed, and its impact on the surrounding environment has been monitored after the water leakage accident from the underground reservoirs happened in April, 2013.
The leak volume from the underground reservoirs was evaluated as approximatly 20~30 litters after the accident.
