Özet

In this study, the radioactivity analysis was performed in drinking water of Hatay province which is in the southeast region of Turkey. Using ten channels low-level proportional counter, the average “gross α” and “gross β” activity concentrations of the 39 water samples were measured as 36.69 and 116.36 mBq/L, respectively. All values of the “gross α” and “gross β” were lower than the limit values of 500 and 1,000 mBq/L, recommended by World Health Organization (WHO). The average annual effective doses were calculated to be 7.50 μSv for the α-emitters and 58.61 μSv for the β-emitters. The results obtained in this study indicate that the average annual effective doses for all water samples are below the reference level as 0.1 mSv, recommended by WHO.
