On October 4, a Geiger counter was presented to the Rockland Water Coalition for monitoring radioactive byproducts from Indian Point in the Hudson River. The finished water from United Water’s desal pilot plant contained trace amounts of tritium and strontium 90 from Indian Point. Tritium cannot be removed by desalination.
