The Marine Environment Protection Authority (MEPA) stated today that the seas around Sri Lanka will be tested every month for traces of radiation following the nuclear plant blast in Japan.

MEPA Chairman R. S. Ariyaperuma told Daily Mirror Online that although a test was carried out on sea water and cleared of any traces of radiation, they plan to conduct radiation tests monthly for at least another year to avoid any risks.

“If the radiation that leaked into the sea water in Japan would come into the seas of this region, we assume it should take place within roughly a year depending on the monsoon conditions and the sea water currents. Therefore we cannot state a specific period that we would be conducting these tests but the minimum period would be one year,” he added.  (Lakna Paranamanna)
