Guam - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency says no radiation levels of concern have been detected in the country. According to a release issued today, the United States Government has an extensive network of radiation monitors around the country. The USEPA RADNET system is designed to protect the public by notifying scientists of elevated levels of radiation.
In addition, the U.S. Department of Energy has radiation monitoring equipment at research facilities around the country. Today, one of these monitoring stations in Sacramento, California detected minuscule quantities of the isotope Xenon 133.
The origin was determined to be consistent with a release from the Fukushima reactors in Northern Japan. Officials say it poses no concern on the detected level.
