We’ve conducted thousands of radiation readings of air, water, rain, food, drink and other media since Radiation Station went online March 15, 2011. We have tested numerous items, substances and sites in the air and over a dozen American states to determine if Fukushima fallout has impacted them. Those special in-situ multi-media tests, many with video documentation, will continue to be posted here regularly as we report on our findings.
Our nine affiliated Radiation Stations which have undertaken over 7,322 special tests and reports, which are ongoing, as of the fourth anniversary of the Fukushima triple meltdowns, March 15, 2015. EnviroReporter.com‘s Radiation Station continues to operate uninterrupted 24/7 and Radiation Station Glendale California not only streams radiation readings live 24/7 but documents the results in a computer-generated graph for everyone to see.
EnviroReporter.com also has in-depth databases of information from Spring 2011 to the present including Special Radiation Station Testing, hundreds of originally-test food tests in Eat Me Receipts along with food and drink radiation testing from over a dozen nations in Radiation Food Lab.
This database has informed numerous articles including Fukushima – The Perfect Crime?, Beta Watch, L.A. Rain Radiation Over Five Times Normal, Japanese Seaweed Radiation Doubles, A Radioactive Nightmare and No Place to Hide.
We have been measuring in CPM because it is easier for most people to see the difference in radiation levels. The baseline external radiation background we’ve established for this location is 42 to 46 CPM which equals 0.012 to 0.013 mR/hr.
Note that none of our readings at Radiation Station Santa Monica California [RSSMC] are impacted by radon progeny as we discuss in Beta Watch.

8:25 am INT RSSMC BG: 44.8 CPM^^
8:15 am INT RSSMC RAIN SAMPLE: 40.0 CPM^^ which is less than subsequent background, most likely a function of water’s natural radiation-blocking properties.
July 20, 2015
5:00 pm INT RSSMC BG: 44.4 CPM^^
July 19, 2015
9:05 pm INT RSSMC RAIN SAMPLE: 38.2 CPM^^ = BACKGROUND
8:50 pm INT RSSMC BG: 36.2 CPM^^
July 18, 2015
3:20 pm INT RAIN SAMPLE: 42.1 CPM^^ which is background
3:05 pm INT RSSMC: 42.4 CPM^^
11:00 am RAIN SAMPLE: 49.1 CPM^^ or 25.3% ABOVE BACKGROUND
10:15 am INT RSSMC: 39.2 CPM^^
June 29, 2015
11:45 am INT WALNUT CREEK, CALIFORNIA HOTEL: 31.9 CPM^^ [which is much lower than average background in Southern California perhaps due to extensive nuclear research and several partial experimental nuclear reactor meltdowns in region’s history.]
June 28, 2015
2:00 am RAIN SAMPLE collected one hour prior in Santa Clara after Grateful Dead concert at Levi’s Stadium June 28: 33.9 CPM^^ or BACKGROUND
1:45 am INT WALNUT CREEK, CALIFORNIA HOTEL: ~31 CPM^^
June 12, 2015
8:45 am MORNING DEW FROM “JUNE GLOOM”: 45.8 CPM^^ or 20.2% ABOVE BACKGROUND
8:30 am INT RSSMC: 38.1 CPM^^
June 9, 2015
9:35 pm SAME RAIN SAMPLE IN PLASTIC BAG: 43.8 CPM^^ or 5.1 CPM alpha radiation. Alpha makes up 52.6% of overage.
Sample #4 – 9:20 pm RAIN: 48.9 CPM^^ or 24.7% HIGHER THAN BACKGROUND
9:00 pm INT RSSMC: 39.2 CPM^^
8:00 pm SAME RAIN SAMPLE IN PLASTIC BAG: 63.3 CPM^^ or 5.7 CPM alpha radiation. Alpha makes up 21.9% of overage.
Sample #3 – 7:45 pm RAIN: 69.0 CPM^^ or 60.5% HIGHER THAN BACKGROUND
7:30 pm INT RSSMC: 43.0 CPM^^
4:55 pm SAME RAIN SAMPLE IN PLASTIC BAG: 54.1 CPM^^ or 14.1 CPM alpha radiation ALPHA ALONE 34.8% HIGHER THAN BACKGROUND. Alpha makes up 50.9% of overage and is not the product of radon daughters/progeny as proved in Beta Watch.
Sample #2 – 4:30 pm RAIN: 68.2 CPM^^ or 68.4% HIGHER THAN BACKGROUND
4:15 pm INT RSSMC BG: 40.5 CPM^^
Sample #1 – 8:15 am INT RAIN: 45.8 CPM^^ or background
8:00 am INT RSSMC BG: 43.6CPM^^
June 3, 2015
10:50 am INT RAIN SAMPLE: 56.7 CPM which is 35.6% OVER BACKGROUND
10:35 am INT RSSMC BG: 41.8 CPM^^
June 1, 2015
12:40 pm INT SAME HEPA DUST IN PLASTIC BAG – ALPHA TEST: 64.8 CPM^^ which suggests strong alpha radiation presence. A plastic bag will block alpha radiation meaning that of the background overage, beta was [64.8 – 41.5 =] 23.3 CPM^^. The total amount over background was [134.7 – 41.5=] 93.2 CPM^^. The amount of alpha radiation detected was this total minus the beta component of it [93.2 – 23.3 =] 69.9 CPM^^ The ALPHA RADIATION ALONE IS 168.4% OF BACKGROUND HIGHER which is astonishing.
12:25 pm INT RSSMC BG: 41.5 CPM^^
12:10 pm INT HEPA DUST from two HEPA filters, one Ionizer/HEPA filter from May 20 to today, or 43 days total: 134.7 CPM^^ which is 2.25 TIMES BACKGROUND HIGHER In just 61% of the time of the last period, the sample was 2.88 times higher over background than in the prior period.
May 20, 2015
4:45 pm INT HEPA DUST from two HEPA filters, one Ionizer/HEPA filter from March 11 to today, or 70 days total: 68.1 CPM^^ which is 78.8% ABOVE BACKGROUND which is just 20% of the radiation over background from the last period which was half as many days. This is a welcome reading and result.
4:30 pm INT RSSMC BG: 38.3 CPM^^
