The monitoring will cover areas within 30 km of plants that are both in operation and under construction, according to a national working plan for drinking water monitoring in 2012, which was published on the website of the Ministry of Health Tuesday.
The document also specified that the plants will include the Tianwan nuclear power plant in Jiangsu province, Qinshan plant in Zhejiang, Daya Bay and Ling’ao nuclear power stations in Guangdong, as well as those under construction in Zhejiang, Liaoning, Fujian, Shandong, Guangdong, Guangxi and Hainan provinces, said Xinhua.
