    Increase in tritium concentration re-detected in groundwater near "Fukushima-1"

    [​IMG]

    The increased level of radiation has been detected near the steel storage tanks in the nuclear power plant, from which about 300 tons of water with extremely high concentrations of radioactive substances leaked on August 20th .

    According to TEPKO, the content of tritium in groundwater near the storage tank was 170 thousand becquerels per liter, while the permissible norm is 60 thousand becquerels per liter.

    Experts believe that the high concentration of the radioactive substance could be due to the addition of tritium previously absorbed by the earth, which has now reached the ground water.

    Radioactive water is the main problem at the "Fukushima-1" power plant. Experts say that more than 400 tons of radioactive water has accumulated in drainage systems and underground floors of the power station.

    Summer 2020.

    Given that the other major contender was Istanbul, I think it came down to a choice between radiation or riots + sharia law.
