Click to Sign Radon-Cancer Petition to Governor Cuomo to Set America’s 1st RADON-MCL

PETITON ABSTRACT

     Two decades ago, a New York survey of hundreds of community wells regulated by the Safe Drinking Water Act found Radon-222 (Rn-222) was present in all 436 samples in concentrations ranging from 13 pCi/L to 26,800 pCi/L -- 2.6 to 5,360 times Vermont’s Radon-action level of 5 pCi/L -- yet not one recommendation was enacted to protect us from the leading cause of death in America for both men and women – RADON.

Cause of Long Island Cancer

Radon & Public Corruption

(https://gfxtechnology.com/Radon.pdf & https://gfxtechnology.com/Rn-Fraud.pdf)

Tables 1-44 & Figures 1-44 below contain fraudulent radioactivity test results for 142 radioactive wells in 21 Well Fields in 17 SCWA Distribution Areas: 1B, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 15, 18, 20, 21, 23, 26, 30, 35, CHWD; compiled from fraudulent 2003 AWQR & 222 Supplemental reports missing from SCWA's Website

(Compare SDWA violations & frauds in other years: 2002, 2010, 2011, Orient, Table A, Table B, gfxtechnology.com/WD-00.html, gfxtechnology.com/WD-01.html & gfxtechnology.com/WD-02.html & Cover-up Letters by EPA Officials , Suffolk County Executive Bellone & SCDHS officials – each failing to cite a 1990 NYDOH Radon Report indicating huge Radon levels on Long Island

SURGEON GENERAL HEALTH ADVISORY

"Indoor radon is the second-leading cause of lung cancer in the United States and breathing it over prolonged periods can present a significant health risk to families all over the country. It's important to know that this threat is completely preventable. Radon can be detected with a simple test and fixed through well-established venting techniques." (1/05)

= But the Surgeon General failed to point the finger at EPA officials that have excluded Radon from its Radionuclides Rule of 1976 thereby causing thousands of “preventable deaths for 38 years.

=To make matters worse, in 2013, EPA Chief Giardina lied to a NEWS12 What’s in the Water reporter by writing: On Long Island where uranium, and radium and radon in the ground is low, radon in water borders on being inconsequential”.

Fig. 2: EPA graph indicates RADON caused 21,000 deaths per year in 2005; compared to 17,400 for Drunk Driving --- yet mothers are not MADD about RADON poisoning their children. See death risk tables in EPA’s Citizen’s Guide to Radon.

Another fact concealed by EPA, NY Health Officials, Politicians & County Executive Bellone’s Facebook page: = In 1990 Nassau County was ranked 30th out of 52 NYS counties by the NYSDOH in its REPORT OF STATEWIDE SURVEILLANCE FOR RADON IN SELECTED COMMUNITY WATER SYSTEMS, NEW YORK STATE 1989 – 1990, yet not one recommendation was enacted.

FACTS

1.                    The 45 tables and figures below correspond to 45 Well Fields having 496 Active Wells in 2002 (773; 142 inactive in 2014) that poisoned 1,081,632 SCWA customers & their environment In 2002 With 69.6 Billion gallons of untreated, blended water pumped into 5,475 miles of water mains from radioactive wells drilled into aquifers up to 710 Feet Deep in violation of the Radionuclides Rule of 1976 and its Amendments -- including those described in a September 13, 2013 Complaint & Petition for a Radon Health Assessment ignored by corrupt EPA, CDC & NYSDOH officials;

2.                     Not one of the tables in Figs 1-45 below from the fraudulent 2003 AWQR is in compliance with the Radionuclides Rule -- which allows public water system operators to deduct Alpha radiation emitted by Uranium & Radon (the 2nd leading cause of lung cancer after smoking) from Gross Alpha measurements, e.g.: The third MCL is for “gross alpha” which includes all alpha emitters except uranium and radon.  This does not allow the deduction of Alpha emitting progeny of radon such as Bismuth-210/211/212/214 & Polonium-210/212/214/15/16/18, as indicated in the 45 tables below.

3.                    As one of many examples, SCDHS test results for three BROWN HILLS RD wells S-117863, S-130815, S-99908 in SCWA Area 35 from December 1, 1998 to August 6, 2009 shown no Radium, Radon or Photon/Gamma test results. Only radioactive Tritium (up to 300 pCi/l), Thorium (up to 4 ug/L=0.44 pCi/L), Uranium (up to 1 ug/L=2.1 pCi/L), Gross Alpha (up to 2.2 pCi/L) & Gross Beta (up to 5.08 pCi/L) were detected, but not reported in SCWA water quality reports for 2002 except for Radon & Gross Beta (Fig. 5 below) in violation of State & Federal law prohibiting the filing of false instruments, etc.

The 1990 NYDOH & 1988 NYDOH Radon reports and Figures 1-45 below show huge Alpha Activity from Radon-222 -- far in excess of the 5 pCi/L action levels in states other than NY – yet little or no Alpha Activity from “all alpha emitters except uranium and radon”; including the 55 listed in CERCLA Directive no. 9283.1-14. Figure captions 1-45 show corrupt SCWA officials; aided and abetted by EPA, SCDHS & NYSDOH officials, submitted hundreds of false instruments (certified water quality reports) concealing hundreds of violations of Point of Entry Monitoring: Community Water Systems must now monitor at each entry point to the distribution system (EPTDS). This point-of-entry change from the 1976 Rule remedies situations in which a “representative point” in the distribution system yields an “average” acceptable standard, yet some homes are delivered contaminated water. Four consecutive quarters of monitoring at each entry point for each contaminant are required of all CWSs to establish a monitoring baseline”.  [1]

Lung Cancer Facts Your Doctor May Not Know

   Lung Cancer Fact Sheets based on the Tables & Figures below indicate “Lung cancer is the leading cause of death from cancer for men and women in the U.S. The good news is that lung cancer found in its earliest stage has an 80 percent cure rate. They include well reports required to establish radon exposure in order to qualify for a low-dose CT scan, as opposed to X-rays that cannot detect small, malignant tumors. The Stony Brook Cancer Center limits such CT screening to heavy smokers or patients that “smoked a pack a day for 20 years, are between the ages 55 to 80, and have one additional risk factor, such as radon exposure, occupational exposure, lung disease, history of cancer or family history of lung cancer. [gfxtechnology.com/LCFS.pdf] 

Example For Northport, NY

    Table 3 & Fig. 3 indicate a person living near the BELLE ROSE well field in Northport released about 2,740 picocuries per minute (pCi/m) of Radon each time they took a 10 Liter per minute (LPM) shower supplied by radioactive water from SCWA well #S-61937 -- enough to increase air concentrations of Radon by about 0.274 pCi/m and exceed EPA’s Radon action level of 4 pCi/L-Air in about 15 minutes – yet corrupt EPA officials have excluded this deadly carcinogen from the Radionuclides Rule since 1976, as follows: “Gross Alpha Emitters (excluding uranium and radon): radium, thorium, plutonium. MCL 15 pCi/L. MCLG zero. [1]

     Therefore, thousands of unsuspecting people have been and will continue to be exposed to Radon unless Congress amends the Safe Drinking Water Act to include Radon’s 39 isotopes and hundreds of their progeny.

NOTE: Table 1 & Fig. 1 show serious violations of EPA’s Radionuclides Rule, e.g.: Both show identical Radon test results of 209 pCi/L, but Table 1 shows NO Alpha or Photon [Gamma] activity; only 2.7 pCi/L Gross Beta activity; a small fraction of the 756.4 pCi/L Gross Beta Activity from Cesium-137 & Lead-210 in Fig. 1. Lead-210 (4 mrem/yr MCL-activity = 1.2 pCi/L) is produced by Polonium-214 from Radon-222 & Radium-226, but there are no Radium tests results as required by the Radionuclides Rule.
