BAEC: Early tests find no sign of radioactivity in Haor water
A team from Bangladesh Atomic Energy Commission (BAEC) has found no sign of radioactivity in the Haor water in Sunamganj after early tests. A three-member team, led by Dr Dilip Kumar Saha, reached Sunamganj on Saturday night to test whether there was any effect of radiation regarding the deaths of fishes and ducks in the Haor water. The team collected samples from 25 points of Hakaluki and Dekhar Haors on Saturday and Sunday. “We have not found any existence of radiation in the haor water primarily,” team member Dr Bilkis Ara Begum told the Dhaka Tribune on Sunday morning after carrying out the primary test of the Haor water. “The range of radioactivity in the normal environment is 0.20, but the Haor water has 0.10 of it. We will conduct more tests. “We have sent the samples to Dhaka lab and will get the final report within 28 days,” she added. On Saturday, a team of Dhaka University teachers visited the Haor areas to investigate the reason behind water contamination that led to death of fishes and ducks following the recent flash flood. They examined the water quality, dead fishes and rotten paddy in Hakaluki Haor. On Friday, separate teams of Fisheries Ministry and Fisheries Research Institute of Mymensingh and Chandpur visited the Haor areas over the same issue that has raised concerns among the farmers, who have lost their half-ripen paddy in the flood. Primarily they identified presence of ammonia gas and fall in oxygen level in the water as possible reasons behind the deaths of fishes and ducks.
