Frequent Questions

Why does the EPA test drinking water for radionuclides?

Having a monitoring system in place to screen drinking water for radionuclides ensures that in the event of an emergency the RadNet monitoring system is able to provide valuable information about radionuclide levels in local water supplies which can help to inform decision makers on protective actions or additional sampling, if needed.  Routine monitoring helps establish expected radionuclide activity ranges, if any.
