Triathlon to be held in Haruna lake in Gunma, “80 million pond smelt eggs extinct, 340 Bq/Kg from surviving fish”

http://fukushima-diary.com/2013/04/triathlon-to-be-held-in-haruna-lake-in-gunma-80-million-pond-smelt-eggs-extinct-340-bqkg-from-surviving-fish/

According to Takasaki city government in Gunma, they are going to hold triathlon in Haruna lake this summer.

The entrants are from 6 years old.

They are to swim in the lake.

Haruna lake is known to be a resort place, the altitude is 1,000m, the surface area is 1.15km2.

The pond smelt fishing is one of their sightseeing activities but they couldn’t even conduct the radiation test due to the lack of samples.

In 2012, they released 80 million eggs of pond smelt but they were all extinct.

(cf, 80 million eggs of pond smelt became extinct in Gunma [URL])

In 2013, they managed to collect only 4 smelt samples, but 340 Bq/Kg of Cs-134/137 was measured. They gave up lifting the fishing restriction of pond smelt this year too.

(cf, Japanese pond smelt gone nearly extinct in Haruna lake Gunma, can’t even find a sample for radiation test [URL 2])

(cf, Only 4 smelt samples collected in Haruna lake, 340Bq/Kg measured but fishing restriction is lifted [URL 3])

This is the first time for them to hold triathlon in Haruna lake. It’s from 7/20 to 7/21/2013. It’s usually banned swimming in this lake.

6 ~ 9 years old children are to swim for 50m, Junior high school and high school students are to swim for 200m.

The fee is 3,000 ~ 21,000 JPY.

The radiation level of the lake water is not announced.

Tepco plans to transfer contaminated water to suppression pool of reactor5 and 6 in emergency

As to the major leakage of highly contaminated water, Tepco is planning to transfer 23,600 tones of water to the tanks.

However, those tanks don’t exist yet. Because they have to build the tanks, the water leakage won’t be fixed until June.

(cf, Major leakage can’t be fixed until early June [URL])

On 4/15/2013, Tepco announced they would transfer water to the suppression pools of reactor5 and 6 in case of emergency.

Suppression chamber is one of the major coolant systems of the reactor.

The reservoirs stock concentrated radioactive salt water. It would seriously damage the suppression chambers as well.

The suppression chambers must have had coolant water inside. It is not announced where the water was moved.
