Abstract:

‎The concentration of naturally occurring radioactive materials (NORM) in surface water and irrigation wells is measured using gamma ray spectrometry by HPGe detector‎. ‎Measurement was carried out for samples that were collected over seventeen points in Tehran city and its suburbs‎. ‎The samples were prepared in compliance with the principles from irrigation wells of city‎. ‎The specific radioactivity of Ra-226‎, ‎Th-232 and K-40 were measured and the results from different locations covered a range with the minimum being below "minimum detectable activity‎" ‎up to maximum of 4.04‎, ‎and 6.85 and 4.7 Bq per liter of water‎, ‎respectively‎. ‎The accumulation of radioactive materials in the samples from southern areas of Tehran was more than that of central areas‎. ‎Also‎, ‎concentration of Ra-226 in all the samples was less than the Derived Release Limit of Canada and Environmental Protection Agency standard threshold‎.
