Japan’s Tokyo Electric Power Corporation announced on the 24th the results of the first radioactive material concentration measurement conducted after the release of radioactively contaminated water from Fukushima into the ocean. No radioactive material above the standard was detected. According to AFP

on the 25th , TEPCO released the results of rapid measurement토토사이트 and analysis of tritium, which surveyed seawater samples at 10 points in the waters within 3 km from the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant, on its website. According to Nippon TV, the highest concentration of tritium among the 10 points was measured at the point east of the entrance to the port, where 8.1 ㏃ per liter was detected. Considering that it was less than 1 ㏃ per liter before the start of discharge, it is a somewhat increasing trend, but it is a small amount compared to the national standard of 60,000 ㏃ per liter. The discharge stop standard set by TEPCO is 700 ㏃ per liter. Tokyo Electric Power spokesman Keisuke Matsuo said, “We confirmed that the analysis value was the same as expected and was less than the standard value of 1,500 becquerels (㏃) per liter.” “We will continue to analyze every day for the next month and beyond. We hope to dispel various concerns by providing quick and easy-to-understand explanations,” he explained. Meanwhile, the Japanese Ministry of the Environment also collected seawater samples from 11 points on the 25th and is about to announce the results on the afternoon of the 26th.
