Tritium Leaking at Dungeness Nuclear Power Station in UK
An investigation has been launched to find the source of the leak, which has seen levels of tritium, a radioactive form of hydrogen, rise above normal. Tritium is a waste product from the processing of nuclear fuels and the storage of spent fuel. The Office of the Nuclear Regulator, which is part of the Health and Safety Executive, said inspectors had found elevated tritium concentrations during routine water monitoring in three boreholes around the site in Kent since October 2012. Inspectors recorded tritium levels of around 850 Becquerels per litre. The World Health Organisation's guidelines allow a maximum of 10,000 Becquerels per litre in drinking water. A spokesman for the Environment Agency said the three borehole where the tritium was found were not close to any drinking water sources. EDF Energy, which runs Dungeness B, said it was still investigating the source of the leak but that tritium levels had now returned to back ground levels. A spokesman said: "The environmental impact is negligible and there is no risk to the public or our employees. "We take our responsibilities to the environment very seriously. Work is well underway to resolve this issue."

There is no 100% clean Plant,
every single Plant older than 20-25 Years
is leaking somewhere!

Don't look for eastern Europe or Russia
because they are really scary!

WHO Guidelines are obsolet, 10.000 Bq a Liter
is disgusting, nothing else!
(but the Reality is more strict)
