The environmental survey data during 1960 through 1971 in Hsinchu area where the 1 MW Tsing Hua Open-pool Reactor is located are presented. Relatively high activity from nuclear weapon tests at Lop Nor of mainland China since 1964 is indicated with corresponding dates and sequence number of the tests, while before 1964 the high activity was due to nuclear weapon tests at Siberia. Total beta activity was measured for most of the environmental samples except the vegetations and agricultural products of which the naturally occurring activity due to 40K was also determined.
