–The amount of radioactive water at Fukushima is still growing, by 150 tons a day. | 26 Nov 2017 | The Japanese government is being urged by experts to gradually release radioactive water in to the Pacific Ocean more than six years after a tsunami overwhelmed the Fukushima nuclear power plant. The water is stored on site in around 900 large and densely packed tanks and could spill should another major disaster strike. The government has been urged to release the water into the ocean as all the radioactive elements of the water except tritium have [*allegedly*] been removed through treatment. But if the tank breaks, the contents may not be able to be controlled.

Japan is poised to flood the Pacific Ocean with one million tons of radioactive water contaminated by the Fukushima nuclear power plant

Fukushima Nuclear disaster is still on going yet the world is slowly forgetting about it. The area next to the plant is showing radiation levels as high or higher than Chernobyl. 300 TONS of radioactive water is spilling into the Pacific Ocean EVERY DAY! Please share this video and bring back some awareness to this very important topic.

750 tons of Fukushima plant radioactive water leaked – TEPCO

–The leak has likely made its way to the ground – officials

| 12 March 2015 | In yet another major leak at the crippled Fukushima nuclear power plant, operator Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) reported that 750 tons of contaminated raidioactive rainwater have escaped the plant. The water overflowed from mounds where storage tanks for radioactive water are located, The Japan Times quoted TEPCO as saying. Rainwater within that perimeter had up to 8,300 becquerels per liter of beta particle-emitting radioactive substances, such as strontium-90.

Radioactive leak at Browns Ferry Nuclear Power Plant releases tritium into Alabama environment

| 12 Jan 2015 | A newspaper reports that radioactive water leaked from a tank at an Alabama nuclear plant, releasing tritium into the environment. The Chattanooga Times Free Press reports that the leak occurred last week at the Browns Ferry Nuclear Power Plant near Athens. The Tennessee Valley Authority said a drain line leaked 100 to 200 gallons of water containing tritium levels above ‘acceptable’ drinking water standards.

Radioactive water to tunnels unlikely stopped http://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/english/news/20141118_03.html

 Nov. 17, 2014 The officials overseeing the decommissioning of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant say a barrier designed to prevent radioactive water from entering underground tunnels is likely not doing its job.

The decommissioning work includes a plan to remove highly-radioactive water from tunnels under the facility grounds and then fill them with concrete to prevent leaks to surrounding soil.

A barrier to hold out water during this process was under construction until November 6th.
On Monday, workers removed 200,000 liters of water, estimating that water levels in the tunnels would drop by 80 centimeters.
However, the levels went down by only 20 centimeters. This led officials to conclude that more water was likely entering the tunnels from the reactor building while water was being pumped out.

The officials considered the effects of radioactive water on ground water, and decided on a plan to fill tunnels in with cement before they are completely drained.

They say the operation will require carefully handling to prevent any overflow of contaminated water.

TEPCO still can't prevent Fukushima radioactive water from leaking into soil, sea

Fukushima nuclear plant operator TEPCO reports that the coolant system of the fifth reactor was shut down due to a water leak. The system was halted after a leak near one of the valves was detected, according to the company’s press release.

The cooling system uses seawater that is being first pumped into the decontamination system and is then being fed to the reactors and the spent fuel pools. According to TEPCO, the temperature of the coolant liquid in the spent fuel pools is currently 23 degrees Celsius and no changes in the level of radioactive contamination has been reported yet.

The biggest nuclear plant disaster for the last 25 years occurred after when following the the magnitude 9.0 Tōhoku earthquake the Fukushima plant was hit by a tsunami that flooded three out of six reactors triggering their meltdown. It became the largest nuclear incident since the Chernobyl disaster in April 1986 and the second (after Chernobyl) to measure Level 7 on the International Nuclear Event Scale.

Currently the biggest problems the plant’s personnel are facing are the accumulation of radioactive water and its storage. About 440,000 tons of highly radioactive water is currently being stored in underground tanks and cisterns. The amount of contaminated water underground is increasing by 400 tons per day due to the groundwater flowing in from the higher ground.

Starting this April TEPCO initiated an experiment to freeze 11,000 tons of radioactive water that accumulated in the plant’s underground tunnels, to prevent it from its leakage into the soil and, finally, into the sea. However, due to some particular characteristics of the tunnels some of the water could not be frozen.

Fukushima operator struggles to build ice wall to contain radioactive water

–Tepco says it is behind schedule with scheme because temperature of pipes sunk into ground is not low enough

17 Jun 2014 The operator of Japan’s battered Fukushima nuclear power plant has said it is having trouble with the early stages of an ice wall being built under broken reactors to ‘contain’ radioactive water. Tokyo Electric Power (Tepco) has begun digging the trenches for a huge network of pipes under the plant through which it intends to pass refrigerant. This will freeze the soil and form a physical barrier that is intended to prevent clean groundwater flowing down mountainsides from mixing with contaminated radioactive water underneath the leaking reactors.

1.1 Tons of Radioactive Water Overflows Waste Container at Fukushima Plant

16 Apr 2014 Around 1.1 tons of radioactive water overflowed Wednesday from a container during cleansing of a water treatment system at the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power complex, plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Co. said. The water did not leak outside due to a barrier and remained inside the building housing the so-called Advanced Liquid Processing System, a facility that has been in trial operation since March last year. The water contained around 3.8 million becquerels per liter of beta radiation emitting radioactive materials such as strontium-90.

REAL Models Showing Ocean, Radiation To Hit West Coast

The following video is a China-South Korean scientific model which shows exactly what we are facing. However, the video seems to show the radiation flowing into the ocean but ending not long after the 3-11-11 calamity. This is grim news because this model projection, as bad as it is, literally does not take into account the 400 tons a day of deadly radioactive water that has been flowing into the Pacific for the 2 and 1/2 YEARS SINCE this model was created. Think of how much higher the concentrations are TODAY. Keep in mind there is NO WAY to stop the radiation flow into the ocean which could continue for decades.

The ‘400 tons’ a day is also another TEPCO guess…the real amount could be double or triple that amount. Furthermore, the concentration of radionuclides in the ocean will continue to intensify and the bioaccumulation in all sea life will be endless…and could result in a massive extinction of the food chain and most all sea life in the North Pacific in just a few years. Some feel that very extinction process is well underway already. Please keep the above in mind as you watch this video…

And Finally, Another Projection To Consider….

Models Of Radioactive Pacific Ocean Water From Fukushima About To Hit The West Coast

Below Is The AIRBORNE Radiation Model Showing
How The US And Canada Were Completely Covered With Radioactivity At
Varying Concentrations Within Days Of The Fukushima Disaster

This is NOT a radiation spreading model….it is a model of the TSUNAMI wave heights.
Many have pushed it as showing radiation in the Pacific. It does not.
