Why Are We Still Drinking That Radioactive Water?

/EIN News/ -- Los Angeles, CA, Jan. 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- US Nuclear Corp. (OTCBB: UCLE) is a leading manufacturer of automated, real-time water monitors for measuring all major types of radiation in water, including alpha, beta, and gamma emissions.  Recently, a new study by the Environmental Working Group (EWG) found that a good portion of the drinking water in all 50 states contains radioactive elements that can increase the risk of cancer, and that in 27 states, the water supplies exceeded the EPA’s legal limits.  At least 170 million Americans are drinking from water supplies that exceed these limits. 

Traditionally, drinking water measurements are made by taking water samples periodically and sending them to a laboratory for analysis.  This means that it could be up to several months or even years before you know if the water you have been drinking was safe to drink.  US Nuclear Corp has developed a solution to address these issues in building the world’s first automated, real-time water monitors that can measure at or below EPA/PAG (Protective Action Guides) drinking water limits for alpha, beta, and gamma radiation.  US Nuclear Corp’s Model NEX-GEN-SSS is a three-channel system, simultaneously measuring alpha, beta, and gamma emissions continuously in real-time 24/7, so that if an alarm is triggered, the water purification or distribution utility can immediately take actions to prevent the water from reaching the public.  This water monitor was purchased and tested by the EPA and has been installed at several water utility locations already. 

The EPA’s current legal limits also aren’t as strict as they could be.  For example, California state scientists set standards that are hundreds of times stricter than those set by the EPA due to the elevated risk of cancer and potential harm to fetuses during pregnancy.  The chance of developing cancer due to the water supply is 70 times greater under the EPA limits than those set by California. 

Water quality and testing is currently a major political topic, and Bob Goldstein, CEO of US Nuclear Corp, expects that “people in all districts will start to demand real-time measurements in order to actively protect their water supplies from radioactive contaminants.  This is a big growth area with opportunities to install these systems at water utility or treatment locations across the USA and worldwide.”
