EPA proposed radiation levels in drinking water risky for the vulnerable

The EPA has issued recommendations for levels of radioactive contamination in drinking water. EPA suggests these levels be used by states in the event of a release of radioactivity. Unfortunately, these guides do nothing to overturn recommendations allowing non-protective food contamination limits, nor is the limit they set protective enough for pregnancy and children since it will not be the only exposure pathway suffered by members public. The public is asked to comment within 45 days of posting in the Federal Register in Docket No. EPA-HQ-OAR-2007-0268. Beyond Nuclear will be asking for an extension on the comment deadline, and will provide comments and talking points. Please watch the bulletin for additional information and actions.
