As part of a series of local events connected to the SC Earth Day Celebration in San Lorenzo Park, Fukushima Response SC will collect ocean water samples with the help of local surfers. The public is welcome to participate and learn more about what are "safe" radiation levels and how increased radiation, background radiation and in our water and food, effects our health and our genome.

The water will be tested by Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute for Fukushima Radiation.

This collection is timed to provide benchmark radiation levels of different isotopes so they may be compared to the Fukushima radiation plume levels that is expected to arrive along the West Coast later this year and into next year. This is part of a publicly funded ocean water testing program which is being done all along the West Coast from Alaska, Canada, Washington, Oregon to Southern California.

Federal agencies are not doing any testing as EPA safe isotope exposure levels have been increased by hundreds of times in 2013.

The $500 cost for this test was from an anonymous resident of Santa Cruz County. More collections for testing will occur periodically this year depending on availability of funds.
