ABSTRACT

Final Technical Report: Evaluation of Fallout Contamination of Water Supplies   [open pdf - 0B]

"A theoretical evaluation was conducted to determine the potential degree of water contamination from fallout and to assess the biological hazards associated with the ingestion of water following hypothetical nuclear attack. The appraisal was carried out by applying the assigned fallout model to various levels of nuclear war and by quantitative correlation of all phases of the flow of radioactive fallout in public water supplies. The water supply systems of three cities were selected for the evaluation of water contamination to study the potential hazards and radiobiological effects from the ingestion of fallout contaminated water."
