Results of the inspection of the cesium concentration of tap water in Tokyo, the third round, 2018

Shinjuku Yoyogi Citizen Monitoring Station cooperates with the inspection of the cesium concentration of tap water conducted by Citizens’ Nuclear Information Center.

We adopt a method of monitoring ammonium phosphomolybdate that absorbs cesium from tap water and river water, with germanium semiconductor detectors.

We planned to do inspections three times in a year, and we have got the results of the third round, so we report them along with the first and second round results.

For more details, please refer to ‘Report of CNIC’.

We collected 20l and 40l water, and after inspissating it with the ammonium phosphomoybdate method, we carried out gamma-ray measurements.
