Fukushima & Nuclear News Update; June 24, 2013

TEPCO showed off their new on site radiation testing lab at Fukushima Daiichi. Weeks after the NRA pointed out their failures to properly test samples, TEPCO shows off the new lab.

TEPCO released two new fish testing reports. The samples outside the port showed lower than usual. Those inside the port seem to be increasing across species.

Water in the basements of units 3 and 4 turbine buildings was also tested recently. Unit 4’s basement showed similarly high radiation in the water even though unit 4 did not experience a meltdown. This likely indicates the cross contamination from building to building.

A contaminated water leak in the RO system at Daiichi was caused by over tightening of a cap on a flowmeter. Another preventable problem, these seem to be almost a daily occurrence.

TEPCO received 115 billion yen from the government to cover compensation costs. Most people have not been fully compensated for their losses or their homes.
