Routine monitoring and assessment for radioactivity in the aquatic environment at nuclear facilities are discussed briefly relative to the critical-pathway philosophy. Limitations associated with present practices of monitoring and assessment are considered as they relate to the requirements of present radiation protection standards 10CFR50 and 40CFR190. Future research needs are identified, particularly as they relate to environmental transport of radionuclides and dose computations.
