WASHINGTON - The United States is deploying additional radiation monitors on Hawaii and other US islands even though it does not expect harmful levels of radiation from damaged Japanese nuclear power plants to reach US soil, environmental regulators said.

The Environmental Protection Agency without fanfare posted a notice on its website on Tuesday of plans to "work with its federal partners to deploy additional monitoring capabilities to parts of the western US and US territories."

A Democratic Congressional aide on Wednesday told Reuters that additional monitors will be dispatched to the Aleutian Islands, Guam, a US territory, and the state of Hawaii.

These monitors will augment the more than 100 monitors already in place in all 50 US states, according to the aide, who asked not to be identified.
