Subject:   [IPPNWFORUM] 30 tons of water was injected into the reactor No.3

#In addition to dropping water from the helicopters this morning, the defense force has injected 30 tons of water in total to the No.3 reactor.

Five special cars were involved in the operation today. They spend around five min for each (7:35, 7:45, 7:53, 8:00, 8:07 p.m.). A pair of personnel worked staying in a car.

We hope the operation was successfully……we do not know whether or not radiation level has decreased after the operation.

#Prior to the operation by the defense force, the riot police tried to inject water into the No. 3 reactor, but they failed to reach the target.

#It was reported the radiation dose of personnel involved in the operation by helicopter this morning was within the emergency dose limit 100 mSv (max data was 60mSv).
