Radioactivity in drilled and dug well drinking water of Ogun state Southwestern Nigeria and consequent dose estimates.
Activity concentrations of 40K, 226Ra, 228Ac and 235U were measured in 11 dug and 9 drilled well water samples from 3 large cities in Ogun state, Southwestern Nigeria, consumed by the population living in the cities. The measurement was done using co-axial type high-purity germanium (HPGe) detector (Canberra Industries Inc.). The measured activity concentrations in the water samples ranged from...
