Oct. 20EX-SKF has translated a recent report in the Asahi Shimbun:

“The Ministry of Education and Science announced the result of the survey of water contamination in rivers and wells in Fukushima Prefecture.”

“Radioactive cesium and iodine-131 were measured in all 101 locations.”

“Strontium and plutonium were measured in 10 river locations.”

“2.0 becquerels/kg of cesium-137 detected this time in Fukushima [37 km from meltdowns] is 5,400 times as much as the highest level in 2009 in river water.”

“As to 1.1 becquerels/kg of cesium-137 from the well water, it is 6,500 times as much as the highest level detected in tap water in 2009.”
