On March 28 2011, we were advised from Nuclear Safety Commission of Japan
to enhance sampling surveys regarding water accumulated in underground
floor of the turbine buildings of Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station.
In order to verify any leakages to underground and sea, and safety, we
have been implementing the sampling surveys of subsurface water and
Regarding sampling surveys of sub-drains, per the instruction from Nuclear
and Industry Safety Agency (NISA) on April 14, we will continue the same
kind of sampling surveys three times a week, and inform the result on the
next day of the survey.
As a result of Nuclide analysis, no plutonium was detected from the sample
of sub-drains (subsurface water obtained and managed in the site) near the
Unit 3 turbine building of Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station
collected on July 18, 2011 as shown in the attachment.
