This research measuring the radioactive gas radon in samples of drinking water in the AL-Shomaly of Babylon (100 Km) south of capital Baghdad Was chosen as the water by 128 sample from 12 regions by using the electronic radon detector RAD7, and the average concentration of radon was (0.29) Bq.L-1 , where the highest value (2.146) Bq.L-1 and the lowest value (0.036) Bq.L-1 , Has been chosen this subject of the current study of the importance of water in human life and living, and the lack of previous studies in the study area.
