We carry out environmental radioactivity Surveys in around Genkai nuclear power plant area in prefecture and Kyushu Electric Power Co., Inc. from situation of ensuring safety and environmental conservation of neighboring inhabitants around the nuclear power plant from 1972 before the first unit startup.
In the prefecture, we install various radioscopes around Genkai Nuclear Power Plant and atmospheric radiation (space radiation) does not have abnormality or continuously monitors. In addition, we gather environmental samples such as marine products, soil or seawater such as farm products and fish, seaweed such as rice or vegetables regularly and measure radioactive material and check security.
In evaluation of plan development of environmental radioactivity Surveys and result, we get instruction, advice of "Saga environment radioactivity technology meeting" comprised of specialized study man of intelligence (ten such as university professors) and, about findings, announce to citizen of the prefecture widely.
In addition, abnormality by influence of Genkai Nuclear Power Plant is not recognized to date after Genkai nuclear power plant is established.
