Author: No Comments Share:

The Environment Ministry will introduce more stringent radioactivity limits covering swimming spots, including a new threshold for radioactive cesium, which will be set at 10 becquerels per liter, substantially less than the current 50 becquerels specified by provisional standards. The new limit was approved Monday by a government advisory panel

Municipalities will use it to decide whether to allow the public access to beaches, rivers or lakes popular with swimmers.
