CONCORD, N.H.(AP)- New Hampshire health officials say their tests for radioactive tritium in Connecticut River water so far are turning up negative.

The announcement follows one last week from the state of Vermont that samples of river water taken from near the Vermont Yankee nuclear plant had turned up positive for the substance.

Both state health departments have been conducting stepped up tests for tritium since it was announced last year that it had turned up in groundwater monitoring wells on the grounds over Vermont Yankee, which is located in Vernon in the state's southeast corner.
