Fukushima Groundwater Cesium Double compared to July


Fukushima Groundwater Cesium Double compared to July


Groundwater cesium reaches record level

JIJI



detected a record 54,000 becquerels of radioactive cesium per liter in groundwater collected..east of the reactor 2 turbine at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant...was 22,000 .. July 2013.
Safe level is (7)

Well 1-3 was previously found to have:
11,000 bq/liter of cesium 134
22,000 bq/liter of cesium 137
Now well 1-13 was found to have:
22,000 bq/liter of cesium 134
54,000 bq/liter of cesium 137

US EPA Limits of Radioactive Isotopes:

EPA has established a maximum contaminant level of 4 millirem per year for beta particle and photon radioactivity from man-made radionuclide’s in drinking water.
Iodine-131 = 3piC/L (0.11 Bq/L)
Cesium-137 = 200 picocuries per liter (7.41 Bq/L)
Stronium-90 = 8 picocuries per liter. (0.30 Bq/L)
Technetium-99 = 900 picocuries per liter (33.3 Bq/L)
Tritium = 20,000 picocuries per liter (741 Bq/L)
Uranium-238 = 30 µg/L (micrograms/liter)
Iodine-129 = 3 picocuries per liter (0.11 Bq/L)
Milk = 170 Bq/kg (of iodine-131)
