This report contains available radium-226 and uranium results received through September 24, 1962, from analysis of composite water samples at the sampling locations of the Radium Monitoring Network established by the Colorado River Basin Water Quality Control Project. This report is the first release of such data. The Radium Monitoring Network is a surveillance system consisting of continuous surface water sampling at 23 significant locations throughout the basin. It assays the radiological content of river water over the entire basin. Tabular data are presented that are below the currently accepted MPC value for radium-226.
