Elevated Tritium at Genoa
#1
Elevated levels of Tritium found in groundwater at former Genoa nuclear plant lacrossetribune.com/news/local/tritium-found-in-groundwater-at-former-genoa-nuclear-plant/article_5d2d8b85-f398-5ca1-9737-8461f119fedc.html

Excerpt:

"LaCrosseSolutions, a subsidiary of the nuclear waste disposal company EnergySolutions, announced Monday that it had detected elevated levels of tritium in a monitoring well near the former reactor building.

EnergySolutions spokesman Mark Walker said there was a reading of 24,200 picocuries per liter recorded on Feb. 24 in a monitoring well 25 feet below ground. That’s below the Environmental Protection Agency’s drinking water limit of 25,000 picocuries per liter, though EnergySolutions notified the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission.


“Based on the information we have so far this should not have any impact on public health and safety,” said NRC spokeswoman Viktoria Mitlyng.


Walker said off-site wells have not been tested because the contamination appears to be contained in shallow water on site."
