Dear all,

Thank you all for visiting, reading and sharing the news with me on the Fukushima Appeal Blog. I’ve kept it running since February 2012. Unfortunately, I will need some break now to attend to some of my health issues.

I would like to thank this blog and its supporters for giving me an opportunity to become a part of the slowly awakening global community during this very important time of global change. I had zero knowledge of nuclear before the Fukushima disaster, and was and still am a just normal citizen. It’s been hard to see Japan becoming a criminal, immoral and authoritarian country since the Fukushima Disaster. So it’s been a huge awakening and healing process to have a platform to speak out instead of feeling powerless, angry and sad about it. With the new secret law that is going to be introduced in Japan soon, Japanese people will need more help than at any other time in its history from foreign bloggers, doctors and scientists. Please remember Fukushima. I hope that the more difficulties we may encounter, the stronger and connected we will become to fight against injustice and be able to act from our heart space. (Mia)

日本の皆さん、がんばってください。 再稼動反対、子供を守れ! 1mSv/yの約束を守れ!

Water leaks at Fukushima plant raise questions over plan to store radioactive water

Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) said on April 9 that radioactive water was leaking from another underground cistern at the crippled Fukushima No. l Nuclear Power Plant, raising serious concerns and questions over whether the utility's plan to handle ever-increasing radioactive water would be effective.
Radioactive water was found leaking from an underground storage tank to which contaminated water was supposed to be transferred from another underground cistern where leakage was detected over the weekend. Partly because of the influx of underground water, about 400 tons of contaminated water accumulates each day at the nuclear complex. TEPCO, the operator of the crippled nuclear power station, had planned to build water tanks that are relatively easy to set up and use them as "trump cards" for handling polluted water. But the latest revelation of the leakage at another underground cistern at the plant has cast doubt on the feasibility of the plan.
Following the latest discovery of the leakage, the utility unveiled its plan to transfer contaminated water into other storage tanks with a total capacity of 43,000 cubic meters on the premises of the nuclear plant for the time being in an attempt to find a way out of the trouble.
Nevertheless, among the water tanks to which radioactive water is to be transferred are storage tanks that are of the same structure as those that were found leaking contaminated water. In addition, the condensate storage tank with a capacity of 4,800 cubic meters near turbine buildings for the Nos. 1 and 2 reactors is also a candidate facility to receive contaminated water, but the facilities from which contaminated water is supposed to be transferred are about 500 meters apart. Therefore, if the utility were to use the condensate storage tank, it would have to set up pumps and connect the tank with the troubled underground cisterns with pipes. The level of radiation near the condensate storage tank stood at 0.25 millisieverts per hour as of April 1. Therefore, it would likely be difficult to hire workers to do the job.
In a bid to break the so-called "shoestring operation," TEPCO is aiming for the early operation of ALPS, a multiple nuclide purification system capable of removing 62 kinds of radioactive materials. The utility has been working on the project because it is exploring the possibility of eventually releasing treated water into the ocean after securing the consent of local governments and residents. But local fishery cooperatives and other parties stand firm against the scheme.
Masayuki Ono, deputy general manager of TEPCO's Nuclear Power and Plant Sitting Division, said, "There is no way to release (treated water) into the ocean. We will continue to store it at any cost." But the utility has not shown the public how to do it.

Even after decontamination 28mSv/hβγwas measured on the surface of the soil that had covered the tank and been absorbed the leaked radioactive water.(11/4/13)
