Tepco press release concerning water transfers
On the other hand, the evaluation of radiation dose at the floor level in the case the
water was transferred up to the 1st basement floor level assumed to fall below 1mSv/h
however, the radiation dose is assumed to be high as more than 100mSv/h in some areas
such as the neighborhood of the aperture
. For this reason, it was planned to ensure the
space to re-transfer when the high level wastewater is transferred beyond the 1st
basement floor level at first. Now, therefore, we will seek the radiation protection
through the operation control as we are now modifying the storage water level of the
Process Main Building to reduce the risk of the leakage to the outside of the system andit is difficult to ensure the space to re-transfer
. Specifically, we prohibit the work at the
1st floor when the water was transferred up to the 1st basement floor level in principle.
