It seems unusual that Iodine-131 would be water.  What is the source of the 
water?  Wells??  What is the 'level of concern' for Iodine-131 in Japan?

Dewey, from CNN-

"Tainted milk was found 30 kilometers (18 1/2 miles) from the plant and 
spinach was collected as far as 100 kilometers (65 miles) to the south, 
almost halfway to Tokyo."

"Very small amounts -- far below the level of concern -- of radioactive 
iodine were also detected in tap water in Tokyo and most prefectures near 
the Fukushima Daiichi plant damaged by last week's monster earthquake and
