2008
While a great deal is known about radioactivity in southern New Jersey ground water, the amounts of radioactivity in the ground water in Northern New Jersey ground water are not as well defined. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the presence of gross alpha, radium, uranium, and radon in ground water in the Highlands Physiographic Province. A total of 31 wells were targeted for sampling. The wells selected were known to have high levels of gross alpha-particle activity or were near wells
