Since the reprocessing contracts with electric power companies were completed in March 2006, the horizontal distribution of $$^{129}$$I in soil within 10 km radius from Tokai Reprocessing Plant (TRP) as well as the vertical distribution at 2 km southwest from TRP were measured using the Accelerator Mass Spectrometry (AMS) method. As a result, the small amounts of $$^{129}$$I were observed due to the atmospheric discharge from TRP. It was good agreement with the predicted concentrations in safety assessment. The validity of the diffusion calculation was confirmed in the 10 km radius. Moreover, the results of vertical distribution of $$^{129}$$I show that the $$^{129}$$I remaining there for several decades that it will be hard to move soil is adsorbed.
