Methods for obtaining ionization rate contours, fractionation numbers, atom-concentration intensity ratios, and particle size distribution from the Miller fallout model are given. Included are complete computer programs for estimating sublimation pressures, ionization rate contours, and particle size parameters. Graphical integration of activity from fallout over the watersheds serving Houston, texas and New York City is described. Maximum levels of selected contaminants at the water intake for these cities under most adverse wind conditions were calculated and reported. It is concluded that the contribution of induced radioactivity to the contamination of water supplies would not be significant.
