Tritium, a radioactive isotope of hydrogen, is one of through which weakly radioactive wastewater ﬂows to the main anthropogenic radionuclides released from the the Ol’khovskoe Bog. A short distance downstream nuclear power plants (NPPs). Its concentrations in the from the trench, there is a storm sewer that carries off aquatic ecosystems in the regions around NPPs are sev- rainfall drained from the territories and buildings of the eral orders of magnitude higher than concentrations of NPP and the Sverdlovsk Branch of the Research and other radionuclides. Tritium is not bound in the special Design Institute of Power Engineering (SFNIKIET) water puriﬁcation systems and is released into the envi- ronment with gases and liquid discharges
