[Second discharge] Tepco discharged 641t of bypass contaminated groundwater again

Following up this article.. Tepco discharged 561t of bypass contaminated groundwater to the Pacific [URL]

Tepco discharged the bypass contaminated groundwater again on 5/27/2014. The volume was 641 tonnes.

Tepco states the radioactive density was lower than the safety limit, however they measured the excessive density of Tritium from one of the bypass wells.

The trick is that they mix it up with bypass water from other wells.

The issued Tritium density was 1,700,000 Bq/m3. The safety limit is 1,500,000 Bq/m3. When Tepco stopped pumping up from this well, 8 hours had already passed since they stopped discharging the water to the Pacific.
