The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is approving the use of 66 additional analytical methods for compliance with current radionuclide drinking water standards and monitoring requirements. The methods are applicable to gross alpha, gross beta, tritium, uranium, radium-226, radium-228, gamma emitters, and radioactive cesium, iodine, and strontium. This rule is expected to satisfy public requests for approval of new analytical technologies for measuring contaminants in drinking water.
