» Drop from the tank-connecting pipes contained very high radioactivity

TEPCO announced on Sept. 1 that 300 million becquerels of radiation per liter was detected in water leaking from the tank-connecting pipes in the site.

The announcement came following the detection of up to 230 millisieverts per hour of radiation underneath those pipes. TEPCO said on Sept. 1 that the radioactive water drops “are believed to be leaks of contaminated water.”

TEPCO says it found on Aug. 31 that one drop of water every 90 seconds was leaking from the connections between the tanks and pipes.
