Review eases radiation fears at New Jersey nuclear plants

    Despite mild traces of Iodine-131 in New Jersey rain water, further tests found no radiation increase in the state’s milk and water supply, according to the Department of Environmental Protection.

    New Jersey Homeland Security director Charles McKenna tried to ease fears yesterday when he said the state’s four nuclear plants aren’t built on any seismic faults and a tsunami-driven nuclear disaster like the one in Japan is unlikely.

    WHYY’s Phil Gregory has more on the review of the state’s four plants.
