“From Yomiuri Shinbun (8/30/2011):”

東京電力は30日、福島第一原子力発電所の敷地内や周辺で3~5月に計測した放射性物質の値に、94件の誤りがあったと発表した。

TEPCO announced on August 30 that the measurements done on radioactive materials at the Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant compound and in the surrounding areas from March to May contained 94 errors.

大半は転記ミスや単位の間違いで、放射性物質の濃度が実際の約800分の1になっていたものもあった。

Most errors were from transcription error or the unit errors. In one case, the recorded density of radioactive materials were one-800th of the actual number.

東電は「放出されている放射性物質量の評価などには影響しない」としている。

TEPCO says “These errors will not affect the evaluation of the amount of radioactive materials being released [from the plant]”.
