Description

This dataset measures the air, water, milk, fish, sediment, and fruit/veg near Ginna Station and other locations(background) around NYS to determine the normal levels of radioactivity and monitors the influence of human activities on these levels. The site numbers represent the location from which samples are collected. This dataset 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). A column has been added for values which can be graphed. Readings where a less than value is displayed show a value that is less than the detection limit of the measurement method and are essentially equivalent to 0. Variations in detection limit are due to variations in sample collection and measurement instrument performance.

Notes
Notes
The environmental radiation data should not be used to draw conclusions for sites or samples that are not listed in the data nor should it be used to create cancer maps. As operation activity at different sites changes, the frequency of collecting samples will either decrease or increase depending on the change in the operation.
Disclaimers
Limitations
The dataset contains data that has been collected by the Bureau of Environmental Radiation Protection Program. It is updated on a yearly basis. Please note that the program’s scope and corresponding sample schedules have been modified over this time period to reflect operational changes and site closures. As a result, certain sites may not show data for all years. 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). Missing data is due to a lag time in receiving the data, sample that was damaged in transit, laboratory processing error, weather conditions that prevented collection of sample and/or equipment failure. 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. A column has been added for values which can be graphed. Readings where a less than value is displayed show a value that is less than the detection limit of the measurement method and are essentially equivalent to 0. Variations in detection limit are due to variations in sample collection and measurement instrument performance.
