#Fukushima I Nuke Plant: Radioactive Materials at Reactor 2 Silt Fence Rising, Again

Radioactive iodine-131 shot up inside the silt fence in front of the water intake for the Reactor 2. Radioactive cesium (134 and 137) continues to rise OUTSIDE the silt fence for the Reactor 4, and the water levels at the trenches from the Reactors 2 and 3 continue to rise.

All is not well at Fukushima I Nuke Plant; it never has been since the earthquake.

From TEPCO's press release (English) on May 29:

Unit 2 inside the silt fence, for the sample taken on May 28:

Iodine-131: 24,000 becquerels/liter
Cesium-134: 4,100 becquerels/liter
Cesium-137: 4,300 becquerels/liter

The same nuclides from the sample taken on May 27 (and announced on May 28):

Iodine-131: 5,200 becquerels/liter
Cesium-134: 1,600 becquerels/liter
Cesium-137: 1,700 becquerels/liter
