Title: Fukushima leak questions handling of nuclear plant crisis
Source: ABC News (Australia)
Date: Sept. 19, 2013

MARK WILLACY, REPORTER: Atsunao Marui is one of Japan’s top groundwater scientists and a member of a panel set up by TEPCO and the Government to try to find ways of managing Fukushima’s growing reservoir of radioactive water. He says putting the nuclear plant on this stretch of coast in the first place was inviting disaster.

ATSUNAO MARUI, GROUNDWATER SCIENTIST (voiceover translation): A river used to flow right where the turbine and reactor buildings are now standing, so the groundwater is flowing very fast through there and it’s spreading the contamination. The company should have known this could happen.

WILLACY: But there are warnings the worst is yet to come because it’s believed that deep beneath the nuclear plant is a massive underground pool of contaminated water which is slowly making its way towards the sea.

    This face time regurgitation is getting boring..

    It's become a copycat fad to put up old news anywhere…

    I see no action being taken… Doubt there will be much beyond dumping it into the ocean in the end anyways..


    • ENENews

      What kind of comment is that? Too bad it's been sitting here at the top for 5 days with no responses.

      1) "a copycat fad to put up old news anywhere"

      ABC Australia had just published this a few hours before it was posted here. Tell me how a new interview with Marui is old news? Especially when he says, "A river used to flow right where the turbine and reactor buildings are now standing, so the groundwater is flowing very fast through there and it’s spreading the contamination." He has rarely mentioned the river under the plant in previous interviews (WSJ) and never with these detailed specifics. Here we find out that the river was directly under the reactor and turbine buildings, and is causing the groundwater in that area to flow very fast, which enhances the spread of contamination.

      2) "This face time regurgitation is getting boring.."

      What does that even mean?



  • weeman

    Have a look at the picture in article, you have one man in the water surrounding tank taking a reading of the ground outside levy and the other man is wearing sandals and his tyvac suit legs has been lifted to prevent it from getting wet, he was in water as were he is standing is wet?
    That tells me the contaminated water in levy is very low in radiation compared to the soil on outside of tanks.
    Where is the protection for the workers, don't they have a training facility, how does that comply to health and safety on job, no regard for human life or compassion.
    Not right in fact this is criminal, to knowingly put workers in danger and not protect and inform.

    • Weeman, they are all obligated to wear hard hats. That is good enough. There is no immediate danger, OK? Prime Minister Abe told the Olympic committee everything is under control, what more do you want?

      Tepco has been having trouble finding people willing to work at the plant. They and the government are using the Yakusa (Japanese mafia) to bring homeless and others to work there. For some that owe the Yakusa money, they tell them that they can pay it off by working at the plant and that they are already in their 60s etc and thus they would die of something else anyway. They bus these people in and have them wear false identity badges so that they can be accepted to work at the plants.
      This has been going on since after the disaster started in March, 11.
      My wife is a Japanese national and there have been reports, leaks, etc in the non-mainstream Japanese news.
      So these "workers" are not skilled laborers and are probably not well informed of the proper safety practices.

    Electromagnetic sensing equipment can determine how far down a molten mass resides.

    We want to know how much and how far…

    Tried to explain fuku to my aunt this morning via telephone… she's 90+ but still sharp.

    Her response was, "Stop trade with Japan. They've destroyed the ocean and will now have to leave Japan".

    She was 24 in August 1945…


      can you elaborate further MichaelV, on the technology that you're alluding too. Curious to how this would be done…

      • MichaelV MichaelV

        Whaler and her colleagues searched for the source of these vertical injections, called dikes, with instruments that measure changes in magnetic and electric fields in the Earth. Both are sensitive to underground liquids, which have a higher electrical conductivity than rock (meaning electrons have an easier time moving through them).

        The team discovered the feeder for the magma intrusions: a shallow, small chamber directly under the dikes, about 4 miles (7 kilometers) wide and 3 to 6 miles (5 to 10 kilometers) below the surface.

        Rare reservoir
        But in the mantle, the layer beneath Earth's crust, a huge 18-mile-wide (30-kilometer-wide) region of very high conductivity reaches down to a depth of 20 miles (35 kilometers), well below the 12-mile-thick (20-kilometer-thick) crust. This giant magma zone isn't one big pool, but a series of interconnected pockets, scientists think.

        The findings were bolstered by research in geochemistry, rock composition and seismology from other teams, Whaler said. "The results from standard electrical conductivity get a huge range, so the additional information gives additional bounds. I suspect nobody would have believed us without some supporting evidence from other techniques."

        For example, a study published in the journal Nature on July 4 shows the mantle under the Afar region is about 180 degrees Fahrenheit (100 degrees…

          Thanks aftershock.


          excellent stuff MichaelV. Though this application is being applied to large bodies of magma, I believe you are correct in suggesting that the principle concept could be applied towards locating the coriums. Not unlike using sound to locate underground deposits of oil, impedance measurements might be useful in locating the 'blobs'. If a large enough array of electrode-probes are driven into the surrounding area, computers could analyze the resulting measurements between said probes for anomalous readings. Hopefully, others will look into this. Thanks MichaelV…

    Get some beavers in there to build a dam so the water will stop flowing past the contamination and into the ocean.

    "putting the nuclear plant on this stretch of coast in the first place was inviting disaster."

    Why are these important facts overlooked in the building of these killing machines? Blinded by money.

    Japan is still surviving without nuke energy…we could all take a lesson from that…what's destroying them is the nuke energy..contamination….spreading.


      @many moons: there are a host of influences that come into play, when selecting a site for a NPP. Obviously, cost effective access to cooling water is at the top of the list. Talk about a double-edged sword!

      With regard to Daiichi complex, I recall reading awhile back that TEPCO predators went into that prefecture and paid-off the residents and elders with monies, goodies and whores, to accept the construction of these plants. Of course, no one in the area had the sense to point out the stone marker that was located up the slope and warned against building below it…

  • rockyourworld

    we helped destroy the ocean with our nasty drilling in the gulf. we should clean up our act before we point fingers at others.this country was way ahead of the rest as far as using the planet as A toilet.fracking will kill us off before fukushima will. but if they do find the culprits that intentionally caused fukushima to cover up their own radioactive mess right here at home, charge them with crimes against humanity


      @rockyourworld: not sure of the context or motive behind your finger pointing. Regarding what direction you look in, you'll find horrendous environmental crimes being committed by every industrialized country. East or West, Capitalist or Socialist, makes no difference. It would appear, the abuse of power is rampant throughout the human species.

      Regarding the issue of fracking. You are correct in pointing to its deleterious effects on both environment and the health of biological organisms. Difference is, nuclear isotopes can have a have life that ranges from days to hundreds of thousands of years. Petrochemical concoctions used in fracking processes 'only' take a few thousand years to breakdown. Now, this is not to say I'd overlook fracking as a threat. On the contrary. I'm totally opposed to it. But it is important to keep in context what one technology is capable of, versus another. Nuclear power technologies are, without question, so dangerous, there should be no question (especially now) to whether they're used within the planet's biosphere…

    • We Not They Finally

      rockyourworld, fracking is a total menace, though for now mostly on a LOCAL level. If it keeps causing earthquakes, that could change. But Fukushima is threatening the entire survival of the ecology of the genomes of the world escalating and ongoing.

      No one wants something as destructive as fracking, but for now it is still apples/oranges.

        re: prawns disappearing

        Six generations ago in the name of greed (not for food) mankind in North America killed 1 billion buffalo and 5 billion passenger pigeons. The birds were all killed, the buffalo barely remain.

        Ten thousand years ago we believe American inhabitants killed off several species of large animals including the huge Taylor's bison. They used some for food and hides, but their methods of killing were excessive (fire and stampedes over cliffs) so the humans decimated a wonderful food source.

        Conservation is not inherent in man's genes. Man is a relentless killer and Fukushima and all the other atomic devices are just a modern method of extermination. This time the species fated for massive depopulation is mankind.

    Inose: Tainted water not necessarily under control
    Sep. 20, 2013 NHK
    Tokyo Governor Naoki Inose says that the problem of radioactive water leaking from the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant isn't necessarily under control.
    Earlier this month, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe declared at the general assembly of the International Olympic Committee in Buenos Aires that the situation at Fukushima is under control.

    • Phil Shiffley Phil Shiffley

      I find it rather hard to believe the Olympic Committee is not aware of viewpoints other than PM Shinzo Abe's. I'm rather expecting the story to someday be revealed the Tokyo decision was an attempt to keep financial markets calm for as long as possible.

      • Phil, good morning. The Olympic committee cannot see beyond their collective noses close to a tray of the finest cocaine TepGov money can buy and straws held by a bevy of bare breasted high class call girls, also the finest TepGov money can buy. But I would agree with you in that getting the Olympics will add an air of normality to the crisis. It is already documented that the crisis was minimized so Tepco could borrow more money from banks. Eventually this house of cards must fall.

        • or-well

          Hi Mark,
          I believe Tepco's borrowing is now from the Nuclear Damage Liability Facilitation Fund – the Gov – AKA the People – as its "assets" are too "impaired" for banks to lend to it.
          Would like to know what bank would lend Tepco money since 3/11.
          I would think any bank creditors that have previous Tepco debt on their books are "unhappy" and eager for the Gov to keep Tepco alive.
          Perhaps you have noticed how, when the "Nuclear Village" is discussed, the role of banks seldom appears…

          • or-well

            Further to that, Tepco is supposed to use their revenue to pay for decontamination and decommissioning, while borrowing from the NDLFF for compensation payments – hence, the pressure to get the Kashiwazaki Kariwa complex restarted.

              Any way you look at it the entire world's population of tax paying slaves are screwed… ;(

              Insurance companies wont even insure Nuclear Power Plants anymore and thus all of the liability and all the burden falls directly onto each of ours and our children's children's shoulders. Trillions for ever with absolutely no end in sight. 🙁

              Shut all these Nuclear Plants down now!

              Mankind is very foolish indeed!

          • obewanspeaks obewanspeaks

            Something like the Federal Reserve no doubt if I am not mistaken, yes they are all still called the people's banks!

            • or-well

              Hi obewan, the NDLFF is not a bank or like the Fed, if your asking. There's a big doc, full of mumbo jumbo, that says Tepco is supposed to repay but, hehe, well…
              I think it does mean Tepco the corporate entity isn't going to be forced into liquidation, at least, not by the Gov.

              • obewanspeaks obewanspeaks

                They appear to be one and the same..civil authority is the government and they approved all the reactors and thus the bottom line is its their responsibility and not Tepco.

                Exact same scenario exists inside the USA. Legal Word Craft is just another word for legal scams!

                • or-well

                  obe, of course nuke power was a scam, one allowed by civil authority. That doesn't mean the individuals in a corporation, in this case TEPCO, should be free of responsibility.
                  I don't think you're saying they should, but I'm not sure.
                  Anyway, you know how it goes.
                  I'm simply pointing out that the NDLFF is not a bank, IS the people's money and Tepco is using that to pay compensation. Nice scam if you can work it. And they can.

                    the criminal element spreads far and wide to the very top reaches of world leaders. This is their time of desperation and they wont go down willingly. They are the untouchables, no need to fool ourselves about it.

                  • obewanspeaks obewanspeaks

                    The bottom line is there is not enough money in the entire world to deal with the ongoing worldwide mess called Nuclear Technology.

                    Legal word crafted documents have no value or meaning when you understand the above statement. Of course Tepco should have liability, but they don't have enough money to deal with this mess and never will have. Therefor "all the costs" are always passed directly onto the existing rate payers , taxpayers, citizens, sick people created in some form or fashion.

                    Thus the civil authority/citizens in all cases concerning Nuclear mishaps/core meltdowns etc. picks up the tab! Therefor any country/civil authority that is currently participating in any Nuclear Technology Applications/power/weapons etc. are not separate from the utility, manufacturer etc. as they are one and the same quasi with all the governments participating.

                    One can write all the Legal Word Crafted Nuclear Bullshitus they want too, but that will not change the above stated facts!

                    Bottom Line: We are all screwed in the end!

          Ok, I meant to reply to Mark not report him. I think I hit the wrong link. Sorry Mark hope that doesn't create an issue for you.

          Just to review…Good Morning Mark. I was curious where you saw/heard that documentation. I would love to check out the details.

          • Its all good, Phil, everybody does that once in awhile. Here is a reference to Tepco creditors.


            "Because creditor banks may stop providing loans if the utility reports a loss once again for this fiscal year, TEPCO plans to return to the black this fiscal year by restarting the Kashiwazaki-Kariwa plant." July 3, 2013

            • Whats NDLFF? Maybe what they mean by its banks?

              "Restarting Kashiwazaki was also a central plank of the government’s bailout of TEPCO, in which 1 trillion yen of capital was injected into the utility last year. TEPCO also got a commitment from its banks to lend it another 1 trillion yen, based on getting the reactors operating again." August 29, 2013


              • or-well

                Mark, Nuclear Damage Liability Facilitation Fund.
                Separate lending facility from the banks.
                This whole situation is so troubling because there is going to be tremendous pressure to get nuclear plants restarted coming from almost everywhere, including the banks, whose role behind the scenes has not been adequately explored.
                There's also huge treaty complications if Japan does not proceed with its' full nuclear fuel cycle plans, ie reprocessing high level wastes and fabricating plutonium enriched MOX fuel.

              • Here we go, "A current account deficit for fiscal 2013 would mean losses for three straight years. This would make it extremely difficult for Tepco to secure new bank loans.

                As of the end of March, Tepco’s long-term debts of more than ¥3.5 trillion were owed to 77 financial institutions. Over ¥1 trillion becomes due during fiscal 2013, including redemption of corporate bonds worth more than ¥580 billion.

                Tepco hopes to straighten out the situation by raising electricity fees and by obtaining additional funds from the NDLFF with the support of the Liberal Democratic Party on the strength of its overwhelming victory in the Upper House election in July."

                This article is recommended.


                So the NDLFF is Government welfare while TepGov owes 77 financial institutes millions.

                As an aside I despise them reporting this disaster in terms of "fiscal year 2013". Its an environmental crisis not a financial crisis.

                fiscal 2011 (April 2011 through March 2012)

                • or-well

                  Mark, Gov welfare – totally.
                  Tepcos bondholders want to be paid.
                  Tepco needs their own revenue stream to continue with decon and decom.
                  Tepco needs K-K restarted.
                  Fuku DAINI IS NOT OFF THE TABLE.
                  There's another Tepco nuke plant planned for Higashidori – 2 reactors I believe.
                  The Japanese people are in for a big fight.
                  Fukushima is a battle in a larger war.

                  • Its all about the money. Japan has invested large in nuclear power.

                    "Since 1993 there has been US$ 20 billion invested in the project, nearly triple the original cost estimate.[2] Construction and testing of the facility is complete, and it has been reported that the plant will begin operating in October 2013"


                    I wonder how that is mixed into this Banker Horror story?

                    What you said "There's also huge treaty complications if Japan does not proceed with its' full nuclear fuel cycle plans, ie reprocessing high level wastes and fabricating plutonium enriched MOX fuel."

                    Seems they put all there eggs in one basket. 20 billion in one reprocessing plant alone.

                    So much money floating around. Who knows what Yakuza pressure is being exerted?

                    The huge money involved and foreign interests makes me discount the poison the masses theory. I mean that was not the intention but is a suitable outcome if they can get a return on their investment. Its all about the money. Haarp, World Domination, The New World Order and de-population are important issues but distractions in the Fukushima scenario. It was an accident created by greedy businessmen. They gambled and lost. We all lose.

                • or-well

                  Oh, BTW, thats a good explanatory article.
                  "A major bank official said if banks were asked to forgive a large portion of Tepco's debt in order to reduce burdens on taxpayers, the scheme would 'disintegrate in midair'".
                  Yup. Big creditors take risks, but when they go bad, they don't want to take the consequences.

                  • The myth of free enterprise. Only real free enterprise going on is the underground market of drugs, guns and other things. Me or you can't legally buy a bunch of beer and ice and walk around selling beer. But the banksters might get paid before the displaced radiation victims. I believe the big US bank bailout would have paid off all house mortgages in US.
                    Policies that keep the peasants to busy to revolt. Its about time even more then money.

    If nothing done, all the health hazards observed since the onset of the Fukushima accident and the recent news of 44 thyroid cancer and suspected cases would be totally ignored.
    By the say, UN HRC recommens relocation over 1mSv area, but I think this is insufficient considering that they ignore the initial exposure and internal exposure.
    1mSv internal exposure=30000 Bq bodily incorporation=500Bq/kg for 60kg adult
    This internal exposure calculation into mSv is totally out of question!
    Health hazards have been actually occuring among so many people in East Japan and we need to conduct 7q11 gene tests more than anything else.

    "a massive underground pool of contaminated water which is slowly making its way towards the sea" ??? It's right on the sea for crying out loud. He doesn't know wtf he is talking about. lol


      @hibypass: it's on the edge of the sea. If it was "on the sea", there'd be do ongoing discussion about migrating corium masses. They'd be burbling at the bottom of the ocean…


    typo "…there'd be do ongoing discussion…" should read "…there'd be no ongoing discussion…"

    • Sol Man

      They may actually be burbling at the bottom of the ocean for all we know. By the sea, near the sea, on the land, but the flowing water can't differentiate which it is flowing under. It just flows.

      • Heart of the Rose Heart of the Rose

        How about in adjacent to/and in the sea?..the river running through ..IMHO..will widen below the landfill..and try to assume it's natural course…and is pooling…

        It is also pooling off shore…
        Here is an example…


        @Sol Man: though there has been some attention to off-shore steaming/fog condensation, which would indicate the possibility that the coriums have managed to breakthrough into the open sea, no additional evidence of this scenario has been forthcoming. What's likely happening is the coriums have made their way into underground aquifers which are adjacent to the sea body itself. So, geologically speaking, they aren't physically being exposed to open sea water but rather are being bathed in water that's connected through underground aquifers to the sea. As such, not only is the sea water being polluted, the fresh water aquifers are as well…

  • Sickputer

    He could be right for some of the underground aquifers. Flow of many aquifers is very slow… From 1/4 inch a day to a speedy 50 feet a day (Spokane aquifer).

    At one inch a day the contamination at Daiichi would take 20 years to travel 200 yards from the reactors to the water's edge.

    Having said that I think it unlikely to be that slow because tidal flow may infiltrate and mingle with fresh water and then reverse to the sea at a fairly speedy rate.

    Lot's of guessing going on, but in any event the poison will eventually find an outlet to many places underground…maybe even uphill to Tokyo's aquifers if the pressure circumstances become an issue.

    • obewanspeaks obewanspeaks

      There is nothing not going into the sea. The fact that they have identified the high rad source means nothing.

      This radiation contamination has been free flowing for the past 2.5 years and every time a tide comes in or a rain drop lands its heading somewhere and soon to "all" of our front doors.

      This conjecture is purely Nuclear bullshitus…

  • Every time another expert comes on we learn something new. I didn't know Fukushima coast was close to 2 major ocean currents. What needs to be done is to catalog all local species and where they swim to and what other species eat what fuku fish and where they go to ascertain any possible paths of bio- accumulation. Respectfully disagree with hibypass. Not clear who originally said it but the announcer claimed there is a big pool of nuclear waste water slowly heading towards the sea. Plausible as tons and tons of water has and continually is being poured on the triple meltdowns and leaking into the ground. The ground must act as a sponge and leaks from the hastily built ill concieved tank farm add to it. The water won't rush to the ocean. There is an underground river drawing radiation to the sea but this is another problem. Situation sucks for sure. Sushi used to be such a healthy choice for me.

    Stay away from all fish!

    • We Not They Finally

      Stay away from the planet! The Star Trek folk needed to put a warning tag on this one. Do not approach under any circumstances. Deadly dangerous.

    What has NOT been said here,
    And what NEEDS TO BE SAID,
    Is that a flood of radioactive contamination has been dumped into the Pacific Ocean since 3/11/2011.
    Some, TEPCO has known about.
    Some, TEPCO has acknowledged.
    But most has silently flowed through melted reactor fuel, and through corium lava tubes, beneath Reactors1-3,
    Picking up heavy contamination from nuclear fuel debris along the way,
    And has flowed directly into the Pacific Ocean,
    Without much attempt to stop it,
    Without much attempt to treat it.

    Now this radioactive contamination is making its way up the food chain.
    Becoming a part of phytoplankton.
    Becoming even more concentrated in zooplankton.
    Becoming even more concentrated in the flesh and bones of Pacific Ocean fish.
    And is slowly making radioactive the flesh of the human beings enjoying a meal of Pacific Ocean Seafood.
    Bon apetite! 😉

    Why ate rich people so stupid?

    …they would point out a typo, and ignore the unintentional but careless manslaughter, and animalslaughter. It is interesting that the only difference between the word, "laughter" and the word "slaughter" is only one letter, the letter, "s." We should start referring to nuke power as "s."

    A great advertisement for the nuclear industry — "Tepco – we put the "S" in slaughter. (Picture of rotting corpses in every home, and much background laughter.)
