1. I hope it is shut down too.

Radiation Monitoring
There is limited monitoring of radiation in the air, milk and water in California. And public access to the data is limited. Near real time radiation levels close to San Onofre are not available to the public. See California Radiation Monitors map.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) provides near real time radiation monitoring information to the public on their RADNET website.

They do not have a radiation monitor within about 50 miles of the San Onofre nuclear plant. The closest monitors are in San Diego and Anaheim.

They have refused our requests to add a monitor in San Clemente.

The South Coast Air Quality Management District operates three of the regional sites for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency

The EPA provides inadequate radiation monitoring and attempts are being made to lower EPA radiation safety standards.

See Dan Hirsch’s 10/31/2011 presentation to the EPA Concerns Regarding Radiation Protection Standards in a Post-Fukushima Era. The section about inadequate EPA monitoring starts on Slide 71.
