Next to the technical release of the Fukushima NPP, radioactive tritium

Radioactive tritium was found in the ocean outside the technical port of the Fukushima-1 nuclear power plant, according to the Kyodo news agency.

According to the Kyodo agency, tritium was found in water samples taken on April 23 at a site located 650 meters north-east of the port of the station, and at a site 500 meters south of it. In the first, the tritium content was 1,7 becquerel per liter, in the second - 2,8 becquerel per liter.

The company operator of the TEPCO nuclear power plant noted that, under government regulations of 60 thousands of becquerels per liter, the level of water pollution is not critical. However, experts pay attention to the fact that previously in these areas the radiation could not be detected.

Recall that the largest accident in the last 25 years after the disaster at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, the accident at the nuclear power plant "Fukushima-1" occurred after the strongest earthquake in the north-east of Japan on March 11, 2011. After tremors with a magnitude of 9,0, a 14-meter tsunami wave came to the coast, which flooded four of the six reactors of the nuclear power plant and disabled the reactor cooling system, which led to a series of hydrogen explosions and melting of the core.
In February, 100 tons of radioactive water leaked at the plant. The leak occurred from a water tank to cool the emergency reactors. The level of beta radiation in this tank was about 230 million becquerels per liter.
