Researchers at an annual ocean science meeting announced that radiation from the ruined Fukushima reactor has been detected in Canadian waters, Livescience reported .
The announcement, made at the American Geophysical Union’s Ocean Sciences meeting in Honolulu, revealed that two radioactive cesium isotopes were discovered off the shores of British Columbia. The concentrations of cesium-134 and cesium-137 are within the Canadian safety limits for drinking water.
U.S. testing has thus far shown that radioactivity from Japan’s nuclear plant has not reached Washington, California or Hawaii, according to a senior scientist at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute.Read More
Officials in Santa Fe say the quality of water in the city is good, according to the Santa Fe New Mexican . Tests to confirm that the water meets state and federal standards were completed through a voluntary monitoring program.
Tests were conducted for common contaminants, as well as additional tests for lead and copper. The volunteers found that contaminant levels were in mostly undetectable ranges and levels of copper and lead met water quality standards.
Copper was tested at 0.7 parts per million, below the safety standard of 1.3. Lead was measured at 7.7 parts per million, clearing the standard of 15 parts per million. In all, city environmental specialists say detectable levels of only nine contaminants were found out of a list of 90 for which they were monitoring.Read More
A European research team has developed sensor technology to detect rapid changes in water quality following a deliberate contamination event, according to a release from the University in Southampton . The technology, dubbed “SecurEau” can be used to detect water quality changes, rapidly identifying the source, and includes protocols for cleaning and maintaining infrastructure.
The SecurEau project is funded by the European Commission with 12 research partners from six countries. The goal of the project is to make drinking water supply systems safer by developing technologies to identify threats. Sensors are installed directly into water pipes in multiple areas in order to monitor for both novel and existing threats.Read More
