Abstract

The article has determined pollution levels of the waters of the Kiev Reservoir by indices of radiation safety (total beta activity and total alpha activity). It has been found that the change of these indices is of a seasonal nature: maximum values are observed in April, minimal—in February. The paper has analyzed the possibility of using the Kiev Reservoir as a source of drinking and irrigation water according to effective hygienic and ecological standards.
