In the days and weeks following the Fukushima nuclear disaster the entire West Coast paid a lot of attention to radiation levels in the air. While there was little or no radiation in the air, there was measurable radiation found in rainwater.

A sample of Portland rain showed elevated levels of Iodine 131 in late March; about twice the amount allowed in drinking water. Now, Seattle nuclear watchdog group, Heart of America Northwest, says the federal government failed to to keep the public informed about radiation in rain water.

Most of the public attention went to the air monitoring which showed little or no radiation coming our way. But things were different on the rain water side.

"The level that was detected on March 24 was 41 times the drinking water standard," said Gerry Pollet from Heart of America Northwest. He reviewed Iodine 131 numbers released by the Environmental Protection Agency last spring.

"Our government said no health levels, no health levels were exceeded.When in fact the rain water in the Northwest is reaching levels 130 times the drinking water standards," said Pollet.

Elevated rain water samples were collected in Portland, Olympia and Boise, which had the highest.

But EPA officials say the data was there for anyone to read on their website. A spokesman sent this statement, in part:

"Since Iodine 131 has a very short half-life of approximately eight days, the levels seen in rainwater were expected to be relatively short in duration."

LIES LIES LIES EPA also lied about 9/11 stating it was safe to work at the site.

State health agencies added that they constantly monitored public drinking water sources and never found levels even approaching the unhealthy range.

The public deserves to know.

Believe nothing that the EPA spits out, Kinda like listening to Reich Minister of Propaganda in Nazi Germany
Lies lies and more lies to the bitter end.
