Detection of Radioactive Materials from Subsurface Water near the Turbine Buildings of Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station (data collected on December 2)
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 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.
                                                    (Previously announced)

We collected samples from sub-drains (subsurface water obtained and 
managed in the site) near the turbine buildings of Fukushima Daiichi 
Nuclear Power Station on December 2, and conducted nuclide analysis. As a 
result, radioactive materials were detected as shown in the appendix. 

Also, we analyzed tritium, total alpha rays and total beta rays contained 
in the sub-drain water sampled on November 14, 2011. As a result, we have 
detected tritium and total alpha rays as shown in the appendix.

Today, we reported the results to NISA and the government of Fukushima
