New Bore Hole, Hot Bath Street, Bath

Wessex Water is drilling a new borehole into the thermal aquifer beneath the City of Bath. This is to provide a new supply of thermal water for the proposed Gainsborough Natural Thermae spa and hotel development. It will also supplement the supply of thermal water from other existing boreholes and help to safeguard the important spa facilities in Bath for the future.

If the heat of these waters is not from hot igneous rocks, but rather from radioactive decay, that implies a higher-than-normal level of radioactivity in these waters. And also a higher level of lead isotopes, and presumably other heavy metals too. Is this the case ?
