TEPCO says information given regarding contaminated Fukushima water have been incorrect since 2011

It seems like Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) never runs out of skeletons in the closet. For someone with very short memory, they could even be too numerous to be remembered. However, the statement of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe that the Fukushima situation is “under control” is definitely unlikely to be forgotten. Definitely not now as TEPCO admits providing inaccurate information regarding the radioactive water levels in Fukushima. And it’s not since this season. The inaccuracy began back in 2011, they said.

A meeting of a specialist team of the Nuclear Regulation Authority (NRA) held its first meeting on Friday. It was at the meeting when TEPCO, unsurprisingly, revealed another mishap. Surprisingly, it was how inaccurate they have been with their reports. It’s like saying that the Fukushima power plant operator never gave any accurate information. TEPCO admitted that the level of radioactive water they have reported were incorrect. Back in May 2011, the Cesium-137 level in seawater given by TEPCO was between one and ten becquerels. As the NRA made another test, it was found that the actual level of Cesium in seawater was higher than given.

Referring to their measurement procedures, TEPCO said, “The surrounding area’s radiation’s influence was mistakenly estimated, and the correct measurement was not taken.” As if the hurls of criticisms against TEPCO even stopped, they are now showered with another. “This was an elementary mistake,” some specialists said during the meeting. If this is what the prime minister meant by ‘under control,’ it would be depressing to imagine what it’s like when things go out of control. The specialist team also reminded that “a regulation authority also should take measurements without leaving everything up to TEPCO.”
