Results of radioactive nuclide analysis are published by sampling below items on the premises and the surrounding area of Fukushima Daiichi NPS.

Results of Analysis (October, 2017)

Air

* Radioactive nuclide analysis for the air sampled on the west gate of the nuclear plant, 3 points near the site boundary (MP-1,3,8), 3 points around Unit 1-4 (Unit 1 north side slope, Unit 1-2 west side slope, Unit 3-4 west side slope) and the sea side area near Unit 1-4 are discontinued after August 30, 2017. Monitoring with the continuous dust monitors already installed at the site has been implemented.

Sampling from Subdrain and Groundwater Drain

The subdrain and groundwater drain systems started operations from September 2015. The subdrain system (a measure to prevent the increase of contaminated water) pumps up groundwater from around the reactor buildings before it flows into them. The groundwater drain system (a measure to prevent the leakage of contaminated water) pumps up groundwater held back by the installed seaside impermeable wall before it flows into the port area. The water pumped by either system is purified, tested, and then discharged into the port area.
It is then stored in temporary storage tanks and the radioactive concentration is measured to confirm that the water quality does not surpass the upper limits set by TEPCO.
Third-party organizations also analyze the radioactive concentration to ensure the objectivity of the analysis results.

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.

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.
