Fukushima village radiation still three times higher above government's target

Fukushima village radiation still three times higher above government's target | 01 March 2018 | Radiation levels at houses and nearby areas in a Fukushima village remain around three times higher than the target set by the government despite cleanup work following the 2011 nuclear crisis, an environmental group said Thursday. In some areas among tens of thousands points where Greenpeace Japan conducted surveys in the village of Iitate and town of Namie last September and October, the levels of radioactivity were higher than the previous survey in 2016, the group said. Most of the six houses surveyed in Iitate, located around 40 kilometers northwest from the crippled Fukushima Daiichi complex, logged radiation levels higher than the government-set target of 0.23 microsieverts per hour, ranging from 0.2 to 0.8 microsieverts per hour.
