In the previous post, I wrote:
They will burn the debris for 24 hours before they measure the radioactivity of the ashes to see if it is below 330 bq/kg [of radioactive cesium], the city's own standard to bury the ashes.
A concerned citizen called the Environment Bureau of Kitakyushu City and spoke with one of the officials in charge, who told him:
Even if the radioactivity of the fly ashes exceeds 330 bq/kg, or the radioactivity of waste water after treatment exceeds the [city's?] safety standard of 10 bq/kg, that won't stop the full-scale incineration. The radioactivity measurement of the test burn is done just to study the effect on the environment.
The only possibility where the full-scale incineration won't be done would be if the extremely high radioactivity was measured, or the incinerators broke down, or there was a visible deterioration of the environment, he said. I am astonished at his incredible understanding. There is no intention to stop the test burn. He said the test result will be fully disclosed, so that the city is not accused of hiding the data.
