#Fukushima I Nuke Plant Reactor 3 Bldg Has Over 6,400 Tons of Contaminated Water
FRIDAY, JUNE 10, 2011
What a surprise.
Workers braved the high radiation (up to 100 millisievert/hour) in the Reactor 3 reactor building on June 9 and found water in the basement. TEPCO says it expected to find water there, but didn’t bother to tell us until the water was actually found.
Have I seen this before? Yes, the Reactor 1.
To state the obvious, if there’s water in the basement of the reactor building, that means 1) the Reactor Pressure Vessel (RPV) is broken; 2) the Containment Vessel is broken.
The only question is: Where’s the corium?
