Fukushima News 12/20/13: Record Levels of Radioactive Groundwater-1.9 MILLION becquerels per liter

20 Dec 2013

Radioactive cesium detected in deeper groundwater

Tokyo Electric Power Company says radioactive substances have been detected in water samples taken from deep underground at the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.

Highly radioactive substances had been detected in previous months in shallow groundwater that was found to be leaking into the ocean.

But for the first time in December, TEPCO investigators detected radioactivity in groundwater taken from a layer 25 meters beneath the No. 4 reactor’s well facing the ocean.

In a water sample taken on Tuesday of last week, 6.7 becquerels per liter of Cesium 137 and 89 becquerels per liter of strontium and other beta ray-emitting radioactive substances were detected.

TEPCO officials say radioactive substances may have been mistakenly mixed during the process of getting the sample.

But they are concerned that if contamination of deeper layers of groundwater is confirmed, it could be another source that is leaking into the ocean. The inspectors plan a further examination.

Meanwhile, at the No. 2 reactor, the density of beta ray-emitting radioactivity in groundwater has been rising since November. On Thursday, it registered a record 1.9 million becquerels per liter.

This video about the Fukushima disaster is called Harvey Wasserman: MoveOn Changemaker.

US Sailors Sue TEPCO for Radioactive Fallout Cover-Up

20 Dec 2013

US sailors and military personnel are suffering serious health effects as a result of exposure to radioactive fallout during relief efforts in the immediate aftermath of the Fukushima nuclear disaster. Can they sue the nuclear plant’s Japanese operator, TEPCO, in an American jurisdiction for withholding accurate radiation data from US military authorities that might have prevented their exposure?

That’s the case being brought by a growing list of plaintiffs and their attorneys in a San Diego court. The sailors and marines were exposed to radioactive fallout for many days during Navy relief efforts led by the San Diego-based nuclear-powered supercarrier USS Ronald Reagan in the 3/11 triple nuclear meltdown at Fukushima, Japan following a devastating earthquake and tsunami.

In this video, plaintiffs Lindsay Cooper and Mathew Bradley, together with their attorneys Charles Bonner, Paul Garner and Cabral Bonner report their experiences and lay out their case.

The judge has given them until January 6, 2014 to file a revised version of their complaint.
