TEPCO Releases Unit 3 Radiation Levels, Shows New Problem

TEPCO published this new document today that includes more radiation readings for the reactor well of unit 3. These new readings done as an overlay  on the recent heat image really shows the problem. The highest readings are focused on the heat readings. The area near the spent fuel pool gate are higher and the location where the steam is leaking is elevated compared to the adjacent readings.

This still requires more analysis to determine what may be going on beneath the thick concrete reactor well cover. The readings are all considerably high with many higher than what was found at unit 2. Unit 2 has been sealed off after TEPCO discovered extremely high levels of radiation were leaking out the blow out panel of the refueling floor at that unit.

Unit 2’s reactor well readings below, they show considerably lower readings than unit 3.
