This is a graph of the cesium-137 concentration in fish near Ginna Station. You can view other years by changing the "Sample date" filter and typing in the year you wish to view. You can view the concentration of other isotopes by changing the "Isotope" filter. Increases in concentration during March and April 2011 is due to the Fukushima accident. Increases in concentration that do not have a comment are within normal ranges. 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. For more information please visit http://www.nyhealth.gov/radiation.

- Data Frequency
- Sample types were taken at varying frequencies-weekly, monthly, quarterly, bi-annually, and annually. The dataset indicates the frequency at which samples were collected.
- Dataset Owner
- Bureau of Environmental Radiation Protection
- Pico Curies/Liter (pCi/L)
- 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.
- 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.
