Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

TEPCO reports three workers checking the condition of a seawater pipe got wet, soaking themselves through to their underwear. The seawater in the pipe was tested and found to not have any contamination. The report also says they were wearing anti-contamination suits (anti-Cs), just to be safe. Anyone working on a water system should be wearing water-proof anti-Cs, so their clothing underneath cannot get wet. I see a problem here with worker radiological safety...do you?


Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.

How were they checking it, by swimming intot the pipe?

Or did the check reveal the pipe was in a condition to spray water in all directions?

So, in what may be my last act of "advising", I'll advise you to cut the jargon. -- My old PhD advisor, to me, 26/2/11
