Environmental Radiation Monitoring
Pursuant to California Health and Safety Code section 114755, RHB
conducts routine monitoring of radioactive materials in the environment,
including radioactive materials in media such as air, milk, food, and water in
locations and certain frequencies.
RHB has responded to numerous requests surrounding the safety of
California residents from past and current incidents at the Fukushima nuclear
power plants in Japan. Information from Federal agencies, State programs, as
well as RHB’s own sampling results, conclude there are no health and safety
concerns to California residents.
In addition to increasing the monitoring frequency, the RHB has
joined Alaska, Washington and Oregon in improving monitoring efforts in
coordination with the federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Food
and Drug Administration (FDA).
The results of that monitoring for the years 2011 through 2014 are available by request at email@example.com.
