Assessment of commited effective dose from drinking water available to anyigba dwellers, north central Nigeria

Momoh Hameed, Teidi Joshua, Ohiani Alexander, Ibrahim Rabiu

The study of the committed effective dose from drinking water available to Anyigba dwellers have been carried out using a background Gasless Alpha-Beta Counting System (Protean Instrument Corporation) – MPC 2000DP. The gross alpha and gross beta activity concentrations of the collected water samples were below the safe limits of 0.5 Bq/l and 1 Bq/l respectively, as recommended by the world health organization (WHO). Also, results of the committed effective dose calculated were all below the reference dose level (RDL) of 0.1mSv/yr. Hence, Anyigba dwellers are radiologically safe as they consume their water from the various sources studied in this research work.
