RADON ASSESSMENT AND RESULTS

Radon assessments will be conducted to determine indoor radon gas levels at selected locations within NAVFAC SE. These assessments are being conducted as a routine task at Naval Installations service wide and other facilities of the Armed Forces.
 
The assessment is not being conducted because of a known concern, but rather as a proactive step to ensure our service members and employees live and work in a healthy environment.
 
If elevated levels of radon are found, steps will be taken to formulate a plan for corrective action.

What is Radon? 

Radon is a naturally occurring gas that comes from the breakdown of minerals found in certain geologies. It is not because of any man-made pollution, such as landfills or illegal dumping, but rather natural occurring radon.
 

What does Radon do to me?

Exposure to elevated levels of radon over extended periods of time can increase the potential for lung cancer. This is why the U.S. Navy is taking steps to identify potential concerns.
 

Is Radon only a Problem across NAVFAC SE?

No, radon can be present in any structure that is constructed over radon producing soils or geologies.  That is why the U.S. EPA as well as many state agencies recommends that all homeowners and schools test for radon.

The map below was developed by the U.S. Geological Survey and the U.S. EPA, and depicts high radon potential areas across the country (shown in red). As illustrated by the map, elevated indoor radon can occur in many areas. It is highly recommended that in addition to this survey, that you test your own home.


 

Zone 1 Counties (Red)

  • Highest radon levels on average at over 4 pCi/L (picocuries per liter).

  • 4 pCi/L (picocuries per liter) is the radon level where the EPA strongly suggests you install a radon mitigation system.

Zone 2 Counties (Orange)

  • Average radon levels between 2 and 4 pCi/L.

  • The EPA still recommends you consider installing a radon mitigation system if your radon level is below 4 pCi/L but above 2 pCiL.

Zone 3 Counties (Yellow)

  • Lowest radon levels on average at less than 2pCi/L.

  • While risk is lower in these areas, there may still be neighborhoods or homes with higher radon levels than the average.

  • Even in a Zone 3 county, your best option is to have a radon specialist test your home to see if you have dangerously high radon levels.
