Bottom Line: The mean (90)Sr and (137)Cs concentrations were 3.92 ± 0.40 and 4.49 ± 2.00 mBq L(-1), respectively.The annual average radionuclide concentrations were not significantly different from the concentrations found between 1994 and 2011.The (137)Cs and (90)Sr concentrations have been decreasing only slowly.

ABSTRACT

The (90)Sr and (137)Cs contamination in Polish surface waters has been monitoring since 1994. Surface water samples from six lakes and the Vistula and Oder Rivers were collected in spring and autumn 2012 and 2013. The mean (90)Sr and (137)Cs concentrations were 3.92 ± 0.40 and 4.49 ± 2.00 mBq L(-1), respectively. Correlations were identified between the radionuclide concentrations and meteorological conditions and the original fallout distribution from the Chernobyl disaster. The annual average radionuclide concentrations were not significantly different from the concentrations found between 1994 and 2011. The (137)Cs and (90)Sr concentrations have been decreasing only slowly.

Fig2: Annual average 137Cs activity concentrations in water samples from four sampling sites

Mentions: The impact of contamination caused by the Chernobyl disaster and meteorological conditions on the 137Cs concentrations in the river water samples can be identified by inspecting the long-term trends in the 137Cs concentrations. The plots shown in Fig. 2 (see Table 1 for the detailed results) represent the mean annual 137Cs concentrations over 20 y (1994–2013) at selected sampling points in the upper and lower parts of the Vistula River (Kraków and Kiezmark) and the Oder River (Chałupki and Krajnik) [4, 5, 7, 8].Fig. 2
