Temporary Storage Site for Radioactive Contamination

Removal of the radioactive contaminated materials stored in this site had began. The work of the day was checking the flexible containers filled with the contaminated materials without using heavy machines, so the sound of the work was not noisy.
I recorded this sound at the point where I took the center picture in this page, as usual.
As same as the day before this day, so many cicadas sang so loudly around the temporary site. However, no sounds of creatures (of course including the voice of cicadas) were heard from the site, as usual.
Several children (less than the day before this day) were playing at the fountain at the Mt. Shinobpark located next to this site. I could hear the voices of them at this site.
The monitoring post near the site showed 0.15 μSv/h. (right picture)
