Tritium is a radioisotope of hydrogen and it is one of the constituents of liquid effluents released during normal operation of Kakrapar Atomic Power Station (KAPS) located near Surat in Gujarat. KAPS has two units of pressurized heavy water reactors which are operational since 1993. Water samples were collected and analyzed from twenty three locations covering the distance of less than 1.6 Km to more than 15 Km from the power station. These samples included upstream, lake water, downstream, canal and open well. Water samples were analyzed for measuring the tritium activity using Liquid Scintillation Spectrophotometer (Model No. Tricarb-3170). All the water samples except blowdown point showed the tritium activity below detectable level (< or=10 Bq/l). However water tritium activity shown in blowdown point was within the prescribed limit.
