Recently a 1.3 Sievert hot spot was found near the containment hatch inside unit 3. This hot spot appeared to be water leaking out of the hatch via a set of tracks in the floor. Now the same area is showing as 1.6 Sieverts. The water is assumed to be leaking from the containment structure and the areas near the hatch are also very high. Unit 3 has had an ongoing problem of levels too high for workers to enter. They have tried a number of things including debris removal, robot vacuuming of the 1st floor but the levels still prevent workers from spending any meaningful amount of time in the building. This is seriously hampering clean up efforts.
TEPCO and MOX advocates have previously claimed that the MOX fuel in unit 3 has had no impact on events there. Yet everything related to unit 3 has been the outlier at Fukushima. The explosions, the huge steam events and incredibly high radiation levels. All of these issues may eventually be found to lead back to the MOX being used in unit 3.
