TEPCO released radiation readings for water inside the unit 3 turbine building this week. The readings were from December 2013. TEPCO used them as a comparison to show a water leak elsewhere in the building was not reactor water. The readings themselves are a rare find as TEPCO doesn’t usually release this data. The readings are disturbingly high.
Reference: No. 3 aircraft turbine building underground reservoir water analysis result （ H25/12/6 sampling ）:
Cesium-134: 7,300,000 Bq/L
Cesium-137: 18,000,000 Bq/L
All beta: 57,000,000 Bq/L
These are higher than any of the groundwater wells on the seafront. Similar readings from the other reactor and turbine buildings would be incredibly useful in understanding the disaster. Will TEPCO release those findings?
