This is one of those things that you have to shake your head at. So, they put the water into the storage facility, even considering pouring adhesive concrete into the suppression chamber of reactor 2. This is to patch the hole that is believed to be causing radioactive water to leak into the turbine building and the trench. Can I say dangerous? I am not sure what the long-term plan is for this. What will happen to the radioactive water inside that storage facility in the future? Is this a temporary fix? What happens if the load of the water becomes too heavy for the storage facility to hold, then it will explode everything, including the building into pieces over Fukushima? I hope that this works and this solution is the right path for them.
On another note, I have listened to Earthquake watches all morning, all week in fact. The coast of Honshu got hit with a 6.1 earlier this morning and has had 10 earthquakes today alone, yesterday was another story altogether. So this is the aftershock with a little push from HAARP. Did you know that HAARP took down their website a few weeks ago, because the data was too telling? How about that? Unbelievable. So this is what the Secret Government does. Barack Obama is not involved in any way, shape or form with these folks, he is against them and is fighting alongside us to fight them, peacefully. Words are the answer, write about it, let people know how this affects you, how this hurts you to see others be hurt by these works of man. Please send Japan love, they still need our prayers and still need our heart. ~Wendy/Ready For The Shift
Nuke operator in Japan moves highly radioactive water to storage facility
April 20, 2011
Operator of the Fukushima No.1 nuclear power plant, devastated by the March 11 quake and tsunami, began Tuesday to move the highly radioactive water to a storage facility, according to media reports.The removal work started at around 10 a.m. local time, when workers moved the highly-contaminated water at the basement of the No. 2 reactor turbine building to a nearby storage facility, Jiji news agency said.Workers connected the No. 2 turbine building to the storage facility with a hose of about 800 meters and planned to pump 480 tons of water out a day.
Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) said it is planning to move 10,000 tons out of the 25,000 tons of the highly radioactive water in the basement within 26 days, the report said.
Radioactive water was found in the basements of the No. 1 to 3 reactors’ turbine buildings, and the nearby trenches connected to them. The water totaled about 67,500 tons.
The No. 2 reactor is the most urgent one as the radioactive water is flooding its turbine building and an adjacent underground trench.
The water level in the trench is rising day by day and went up 3 cm from Sunday to 82 cm as of 7 a.m. Monday.
The utility is also considering pouring adhesive concrete into the suppression chamber of reactor 2 to patch the hole that is believed to be causing radioactive water to leak into the turbine building and the trench.
Removing the water to nearby tanks and other storage places is considered vital to the attempt of restoring the key cooling functions at the reactors, which have been out of action since the mega-quake and tsunami.
