Irish Sea Technetium Levels Queried

The Celtic League have written to the Radiological Protection Institute of Ireland (RPII) asking them to confirm if a recent report records a marginal increase in the level of technetium-99 in the Marine environment.

Dear Dr McGarry

I note in the most recent report RPII report (issued January 2011)
“Radioactivity Monitoring of the Irish Environment 2009″ that the level of technetium-99 recorded in the Marine environment seems to indicate an increase, albeit marginal. I refer to the graph – Figure 2.

I can find no mention of any technetium increase in the body text of the report and wondered if you could confirm that such an increase has been recorded.

If this is the case would it be possible for you to outline in numeric terms the readings over the past two years i.e. 2008 and 2009.

Yours sincerely,

J B Moffatt
Director of Information”
