Diablo Canyon Power Plant (DCPP) Units 1 and 2 Annual Radiological Environmental Operating Report, published April 30, 2014: Isotopic releases occurred in Japan and were carried by the jet stream to the west coast of the United States… [DCPP] periodically detected cesium (Cs-137) within market fish and cow meat due to deposition of Cs-137 from [Fukushima]… Fukushima Cs-137 was detected within one sample of monitoring well… Cs-137 was detected in three samples of market fish most likely due to rainwater washout of Fukushima Cs-137… Cs-137 was detected in [a] 2013 meat samples due to the Fukushima Japan nuclear accidents. This detection occurred… in October… [DCPP] detected cesium within milk, vegetation, and meat throughout 2011 [and] continued to detect cesium within groundwater, fish, vegetation, and meat throughout 2012.

Diablo Canyon Power Plant Units 1 and 2 Annual Radiological Environmental Operating Report, Apr. 30, 2013: Throughout 2012 [we] continued to detect cesium (Cs-137) within milk, vegetation, monitoring wells, fish, and meat due to deposition of Cs-137 from that event… Concentrations of cesium (Cs-137) were also detected in two shallow monitoring wells… This cesium was evaluated and attributed to rain-washout of Fukushima fallout… Due to topography and site characteristics, this groundwater gradient flow discharged into the Pacific Ocean… Cs-137 was detected in three samples of fish most likely due to rainwater washout of Fukushima Cs-137… Cs-137 was detected in 2012 vegetation samples… due to rainwater washout of Fukushima Cs-137 [that] was absorbed by plant life and the soil. DCPP… has routinely detected Cs-137 in plant life since March of 2011 due to this Fukushima event… Cs-137 was detected in… [cow] meat samples due to the Fukushima Japan nuclear accidents… Vegetation uptake and subsequent digestion by the animals were the source of these Cs-137 isotopes into the meat.

  • There are many rogue coria that 'escaped' containment at Fuku.. a few were captured on film, like the one above. The dog catcher assigned to catch these runaways has not had any success in catching them, according to the latest reports.

    The nuclear industry rule is;

    Cover up 99%, admit 1%

    So far, the cover up plan has worked, except here on ENEnews.

    This particular corium is kind of cute, don't you think? It has a certain perky quality.

  • VoIPEng, I like what you said on page 1….bomb factories….

    "The crux of the problem with Nuclear plants is that they are basically bomb factories that produce and sell power as an added bonus. Bombs that are made to kill mostly innocent women, children and men."

    Unless we stop this Fukushima manmade radiation contamination release at the source, the entire Pacific Ocean will become bitter waters, and then all the fresh water found on land will follow suit. 🙁

    It's only a matter of time…more Nuclear Power Plants will fail in the near future.

    Best to shut down this entire Nuclear Industry worldwide while we humans still can.. 🙂

    Coast to Coast has an interesting fellow on..this is the electromagnetic scatter gun he needs to identify..but has not.
