Cesium levels soar in groundwater at Fukushima N-plant

July 09

Tokyo Electric Power Co. on Tuesday reported a surge in radioactive cesium levels in groundwater in an observation well at its Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant in northeastern Japan.

This signals that radioactive contamination is spreading under the ground of the disaster-stricken facility.

Water sampled from the well on Monday contained 9,000 becquerels of cesium-134 per liter and 18,000 becquerels of cesium-137, both about 90 times the levels found last Friday, TEPCO said. The well is located near the turbine building for the No. 2 reactor and about 25 meters from the port for the nuclear plant.
