Abstract
EPA-R&IE’s routine surveillance of ground and surface waters under the LTHMP was expanded for 1997 to include selected sampling of aquatic biota and sediments based on decisions of the Amchitka Technical Advisory Group (ATAG). The additional samples were collected from streams, lakes, seeps, and marine tidal areas within the surface drainage basins surrounding surface ground zero (SGZ) at each of the three test sites. Aquatic plants and sediments from a geographically similar reference area in the central part of the island were also collected. Lichens were sampled at one location on Amchitka Island and on Adak Island (about 300 km [188 miles (mi)] ESE of Amchitka) to provide data on worldwide fallout deposition on surface environments.

Abstract
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency conducted an off-site radiological surveillance and public safety program in Alaska for the Cannikin Event, a high yield underground nuclear weapon test conducted on Amchitka Island on November 6, 1971. In addition to aerial and shipboard monitoring teams in the Amchitka area, personnel were stationed at twenty-five communities on Kodiak Island, the Alaska Peninsula, the Aleutian Island Chain, the Pribilof Islands, and Anchorage to monitor environmental radioactivity levels if a radioactive release occurred, and coordinate other public safety measures that might be required. Air, water, milk, precipitation, vegetation, soil, sediment, and marine foodstuff samples were also collected during the test period. No radioactivity above usual background levels was observed, and no public safety problems were encountered.

Abstract
Radiochemical data from the Arnchitka Island study area were obtained from water samples collected by the U.S. Geological Survey during August 1974. Tritium determinations were made on 18 samples, and gross alpha and gross beta/ gamma determinations were made on 12 samples. No appreciable differences were found between the data obtained during August 1974 and the data obtained before the Cannikin event
Chemical analyses were made on 4 samples collected in 1971, on 15 samples in 1972, on 11 samples in 1973, and 7 samples in 1974. Comparison of these analyses to analyses of samples collected before the Cannikin event indicates no changes outside of the seasonal range normally found at the sampling locations.
