Japan's Reports on Conditions at TEPCO's Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station

On 22 January 2014, the Nuclear Regulation Authority (NRA) of Japan provided the IAEA with an update on radioactivity in seawater at TEPCO's Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station (NPS).

This update on the daily monitoring by TEPCO of seawater near Fukushima Daiichi NPS indicates that the concentrations of all radionuclides (i.e. Cs-134, Cs-137, total Beta and H-3) were relatively stable from 13 to 20 January 2014 at the sampling points T-1 and T-2-1. The sampling points T-1 and T-2-1 near the Fukushima Daiichi NPS are sentinels to assess effects on the environment by incidents including a leakage of contaminated water. The Nuclear Regulation Authority has been closely observing the results of TEPCO's monitoring of seawater at these sampling points.

The NRA also provided an update on the sea area monitoring results for radioactivity obtained from sea water samples taken at a distance of two to 200 kilometers from TEPCO's Fukushima Daiichi NPS.

TEPCO has also posted photos and a video on the water leakage on the first floor near the main steam isolation valve at Unit 3 Fukushima Daiichi NPS and it can be viewed here.
