Description

This dataset provides gamma radiation readings collected through Environmental Thermoluminescent Dosimeter (TLDs) devices placed at various facilities and locations in New York State. The Environmental TLDs provide a quantitative measurement of the radiation levels in the area in which they are placed. This dataset can be used by the general public, researchers and facility staff to evaluate environmental radiation levels at various locations. Facility operators may use data for inter-comparison and trending purposes. Please note that this program is not designed, or intended to monitor releases from discharge points at a specific facility (e.g., a stack). The facility operator performs this type of monitoring to meet the requirements of its licensing agency (e.g., a federal agency or the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation). For more information please visit www.nyhealth.gov/radiation or go to the "About" tab.

Notes
Notes
The dataset would not be used to create cancer incident maps, since the data is not representative of any individual’s radiation exposure. As operations activity at different sites may change, the frequency of collecting samples may either decrease or increase depending on the change in the operation.
Disclaimers
Limitations
Please note that this program is not designed, or intended to monitor releases from discharge points at a specific facility (e.g., a stack). The facility operator performs this type of monitoring to meet the requirements of its licensing agency (e.g., a federal agency or the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation). The Bureau of Environmental Radiation Protection Program collects this data and it is updated on a yearly basis. Please note that the program’s scope and corresponding sample schedules have been modified over time to reflect operational changes and site closures. As a result, certain sites may not show data for all years/report periods. The dataset does not represent nor does it include data collected by other programs. The datasets are organized by sites and include only samples found at those sites. Missing data is typically due to missing or damaged devices, so as to be unreadable.
