The Canadian Radiological Monitoring Network – Tritium in Drinking Water

The Canadian Radiological Monitoring Network – Tritium in Drinking Water This dataset provides the results obtained by Health Canada’s Radiological Monitoring Network (CRMN) for the tritium activity concentration in drinking water originating from the water treatment plants in Ottawa, ON. More information about the CRMN network can be found on the Health Canada website (see link below). The results provided are the tritium activity concentration in units of becquerels per litre (Bq/L). Although ensuring water quality is a matter of provincial jurisdiction, the CRMN, in collaboration with the city of Ottawa, has been conducting a targeted program to monitor the radiological content of drinking water from two water treatment plants in Ottawa, ON. The Guidelines for Canadian Drinking Water Quality recommend a Maximum Acceptable Concentration (MAC) for tritium in drinking water of 7000 Bq/L. The measured activity concentrations of tritium in drinking water are well below this guideline value. The map shows the approximate sampling location for each monitoring station. Stations are found within the associated location range. 2022-08-25 Health Canada HC.rpb-brp.SC@canada.ca Health and SafetyNature and EnvironmentTritiumradiation monitoringenvironmental radioactivity monitoringdrinking waterRadioactivityRadioactive materialsEnvironmentHealth Tritium in Drinking WaterESRI REST https://maps-cartes.services.geo.ca/server_serveur/rest/services/HC/tritium_water_en/MapServer Tritium in Drinking WaterESRI REST https://maps-cartes.services.geo.ca/server_serveur/rest/services/HC/tritium_water_fr/MapServer Tritium in Drinking WaterWMS https://maps-cartes.services.geo.ca/server_serveur/services/HC/tritium_water_en/MapServer/WMSServer?SERVICE=WMS&VERSION=1.3.0&REQUEST=GetCapabilities Tritium in Drinking WaterWMS https://maps-cartes.services.geo.ca/server_serveur/services/HC/tritium_water_fr/MapServer/WMSServer?SERVICE=WMS&VERSION=1.3.0&REQUEST=GetCapabilities Tritium in Drinking Water - DataCSV https://health.canada.ca/apps/open-data/crmn/nms_tritium_drinkingwater_ssn_tritium_eau_potable.csv CRMN - supporting informationHTML https://www.canada.ca/en/health-canada/services/health-risks-safety/radiation/understanding/measurements.html Tritium in Drinking Water - Data DictionaryPDF https://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/data-donnees/hecs-dgsesc/dictionary_dictionnaire/tritium_drinking_water_data_dictionary-dictionnaire_tritium_eau_potable-eng.pdf Tritium in Drinking Water - Data DictionaryPDF https://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/data-donnees/hecs-dgsesc/dictionary_dictionnaire/tritium_drinking_water_data_dictionary-dictionnaire_tritium_eau_potable-fra.pdf
