Rapid Radiochemical Method Strontium-90 (90Sr) in Water Samples
Hall, K. AND J. Buckley. Rapid Radiochemical Method Strontium-90 (90Sr) in Water Samples. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Washington, DC, EPA/600/S-17/061, 2017.
Communications Fact Sheet
EPA’s rapid radiochemical methods expedite analytical turnaround time for selected radionuclides while providing quantitative results that meet measurement quality objectives. Methods are applicable to samples where contamination is from either known or unknown origins. The method provides a very rapid non-radioisotope-specific screen for total radiostrontium in drinking water and other aqueous samples. This fact sheet is intended for radioanalytical laboratory personnel, decision makers within the incident command structure, additional reoccupancy decision makers (e.g., state and local public health), and other field environmental response personnel.
