38. Virtually none at all. Which, coincidentally, is the same as the river.
as explained earlier, the relevant figure is Bq/L... and the amount given works out to an amount so low that you couldn't drink enough of of the stuff to get a significant exposure.

Btw, Bq is a measure of activity, not dose... And the tritium in self-luminous exit signs is gaseous. Improperly disposed of, those signs do often leak. Which is why many landfills leak more tritiated water than the reactors that man hear frequently (and ignorantly) whine about.
