In this study, the result of systematic measurement of activity concentration of 222 Rn in drinking water from sources of public water supply along the coastal regions of Kerala is discussed. The 222 Rn concentrations in water were measured using the emanometry method and it was found to vary from 0.03 to 1.31Bq l−1 . The associated effective doses were computed for the population of the region.
