10L of water leakage “500,000Bq/cm3″, Fukushima Diary, Jan. 10, 2012:

  • Water leaking from the tank to storage abandoned salty water after purifying system of highly contaminated water
  • It was 10 L[iters] to leak
  • It’s supposed to contained a portion of radionuclides such as Cesium or Strontium, which is 500,000 Bq/cm3

Conversion: 500,000 Bq/cm3 = 500,000 Bq/ml = 500,000,000 Bq/liter = 5,000,000,000 Bq in 10 liters of water

The water it leaks from the waste brine tank, looseness of = volt/bolt – the Fukushima 1st nuclear plant, Jiji, January 10, 2012:

Tokyo Electric Power Company announced that on the 10th, from the waste brine storage tank after the high density contaminated water processing, the water approximately 10 liters which include the radioactive substance leaked. [...]

Other than the minute radioactive cesium, the radioactive substance which produces beta ray of strontium 90 and the like per 1 cubic centimeters 500,000 Becquerel was included in the water which leaked.
