Not sure why google translated liters directly into gallons. So exchange the word ‘gallons’ into ‘liter’ in the following article.
1 US gallon = 3.785411784 liters.
So it’s 23,78 million gallons of highly radioactive water.

GLOBAL 2000 warns: Fukushima has “time bomb” in the basement!
Utl: 99 million gallons of highly radioactive water are now threatening to leak – Four months uncontrolled radioactive release and continuing meltdown =Vienna (OTS) - The environmental group warns GLOBAL 2000: 99 Million gallons of highly radioactive water in the basement of the four Nuclear-threatening wrecks in Fukushima, despite the efforts of the operators leak. "For four months now put the destroyed Nuclear reactors in Fukushima uncontrolled release of radioactivity: in Form of water vapor that is formed during the evaporation of cooling water, and in the form of water after contact with the molten Nuclear fuel in the basement of the nuclear complex is running. This highly radioactive water accumulates here and threatens to leak, " warns Dr. Reinhard Uhrig, nuclear expert from Global 2000. The Operating company TEPCO still trying desperately to ever new Storage capacities and simultaneously to create a finite Water treatment system to get going. "In early April, emergency measure as simply 10 million gallons of radioactive water medium from the central treatment plant directly discharged into the sea - The radioactivity in the Pacific grew strong locally already are Radioisotopes in fish like sand eels and whales clearly measurable, " Sun Uhrig. "Meanwhile, the central processing plant in Fukushima full again - even a floating platform and Additional tanks are filled with 22 million gallons, so that already total of 121 million gallons of highly radioactive broth to a solution please wait. "The water is risingThe water treatment plant operators in the company TEPCO recent weeks to install, up to 1.2 million liters decontaminate radioactive water per day. There are always However, problems with the cesium-absorber materials and the very improvised plastic tubes under the high pressure of the System will leak and burst. "You can then almost a month after Starting work on 15 June is no longer of 'teething' speak of the treatment system, but system errors, the always stop the treatment - at the same time increases the Water, "said Uhrig. To the still red-hot molten core to cool, 400,000 liters of fresh water per day into the reactors pumped - that are contaminated again and in the basement . throughRadioactive water in 5 hours deadlyThe water in the basement is through contact with the nuclear fuel large amounts of radionuclides incorporated. Measurements show especially among the destroyed reactor containment of a 2 Peak value of 19 billion becquerels per liter - the limit for Drinking water is 300 becquerels. The dose rate in this Area is 1000 mSv per hour. "If a person is near the radioactive fluid is present, so do not Once water vapor inhaling or drinking radioactive water at all, occurs after an hour of radiation sickness and the person receives after five hours, a guaranteed lethal dose. And Million liters of this extremely dangerous threat broth escape! " Uhrig warns.Radioactive substances in groundwaterOn 7 April was found that radioactive water not only uncontrolled in the Pacific expires, but that the radionuclides iodine-131, cesium-134 and -137 in high Concentrations in groundwater found at the plant. Despite Sealing of shafts and Absperrzäunen the ocean off the system further radioactive substances come out, although not in high Concentration, but it continuously for months. By the radioactive fallout directly after the explosions of Reactor 1 and 3 and consequent release of large Radionuclides was radioactive iodine and cesium in even Drinking water of the 240 km from Tokyo measured - more than 1 / 10 of Limit, before the start of drinking water for pregnant women, babies and young children has been warned. Early July, was re-radioactive Cesium in drinking Waser measured in Tokyo - in very small Concentration, but the time lag between the explosions and the spatial distance from the ruins of the more disturbing.Despite four months of efforts: No safe Abklingzustand the Meltdowns"The repeated contamination of drinking water for the Tokyo-reveals that nuclear catastrophe is far from over: The Nuclear meltdowns of Fukushima are far from a safe Abklingzustand removed, the temperature in the devastated Pressure vessels is still up to 149 degree C - stable State is achieved when this temperature is lowered below 65 degree C can be. Until then, the reactors must be cooled - and are continuing to free radioactivity, if not a closed Cooling system can be installed, "warns Uhrig.GLOBAL 2000 calls Fukushima control of wrecks by IAEA"Now the time has come for the international Community under the auspices of the IAEA inspection of the to take over nuclear wrecks must. It is a common Effort of nations necessary to the uncontrolled release to end of highly radioactive water. This has not only local Impacts on groundwater and drinking water but also on the Pacific oceans to the global ecosystem, "said Uhrig concluded.Timing of the Fukushima-disasters: http://www.global2000.at/module/media/data/global2000.at_de/content/a tom_pdf / Die_Reaktorkatastrophen_von_Fukushima_ppt.pdf_me / Die_Reaktork atastrophen_von_Fukushima_ppt.pdfContact: GLOBAL 2000 Simonne Baur, Tel: +43 699 14 2000 23 Reinhard Uhrig, Tel: +43 699 14 2000 18 press @ global2000.at www.global2000.at*** OTS ORIGINAL PRESS RELEASE UNDER EXCLUSIVE Content and accuracy of DERS - WWW.OTS.AT ***OTS0012 2011-07-10/10: 36101 036 July 11GLL0001 0775
