Safety in Drinking Water? Monitoring for Radioactive Contaminants Only Required Every Three, Six, or Nine Years per Federal Law
Date:10/28/2009

An incident of terrorism, accident, or improper disposal of radioactive materials will surely contaminate America's public water systems. Such a catastrophe would impact the population with increased cancer and associated illnesses and the enormous cost of replacing the critical water treatment and distribution network. In response to this threat, Technical Associates created the models NexGen-SSS and UniTect. World-wide, these are the only instrumentation available providing 24/7 monitoring for radionuclide contamination of American's vulnerable water systems.

Canoga Park, CA (PRWEB) October 28, 2009 -- Current federal law requires testing of drinking water for radionuclides, "hazardous radioactive materials" every three to nine years. The states have the option to increase testing frequency, per the Federal Register, Year 2000; page 76746.

An incident of terrorism, accident, or improper disposal of radioactive materials will surely contaminate America's public water systems. Such a catastrophe would impact the population with increased cancer and associated illnesses and the enormous cost of replacing the critical water treatment and distribution network.

The risk of such contamination is real and cannot be ignored. Community water sources are vulnerable and such infrequent monitoring poses a real threat to national security.

"Imagine the scope of damage from pulling water from a radiation contaminated lake or reservoir, pumping it around the city, and unknowingly drinking it for three years?" asks Technical Associates CEO Bob Goldstein, "The logical solution is 24/7 monitoring at the treatment plant and distribution point."
