Radioactivity in No. 1 Reactor Basement Water 10,000 Times Normal
Fukushima, May 30 (Jiji Press)--Tokyo Electric Power Co. <9501> said Monday that the amounts of radioactive materials in water at a reactor building of the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant were about 10,000 times the normal levels for water inside a nuclear reactor.
The water, recently found in the basement of the No. 1 reactor building of the nuclear power plant, contained 30,000 becquerels of iodine-131 per cubic centimeter, 2.5 million becquerels of cesium-134 and 2.9 million becquerels of cesium-137.
On May 13, Tokyo Electric Power employees entered the No. 1 reactor building and found water 4.2 meters deep in the basement.
Water levels had risen to 4.6 meters high by 5 p.m. Monday (8 a.m. GMT) due to rain and water injections to cool the damaged nuclear fuel. The amount is estimated at 2,700 tons.
The water is believed to have leaked into the basement from the reactor pressure vessel and the container that houses the vessel.

Duh, it was a meltdown..
I find it inconceivable that they “just found” this contaminated water. One would think that by now, with the greatest minds in the world laser-focused on this problem, would at least have an accurate idea about the conditions at, in, and around the plant, but that is clearly not the case.

I do not believe they ‘WANT’ to “Find Out.” Certainly they don’t want to tell us the truth.
I do not know if I want to hear the truth about the Power Plant. The truth about our own Govt is too much to swallow. Instead:
Psalm 121:1: I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.
2: My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.
Oh they know I think. Just releasing information piece-meal. They wouldn’t have to do this if the public was informed rightly. Unfortunately the public is squimmish about every thing anymore...so they have no choice but to piece-meal.
