Radon Testing in Schools

Protecting the Health of Children and Teachers

Chances are you've already heard of radon - a deadly radioactive gas that causes lung cancer.

But what you might not have heard is that high radon levels have been found in a number of schools across the country. Therefore, it is important that students, teachers, and parents be aware that a radon problem could potentially exist in their school.

An EPA nationwide survey of radon levels in schools estimates that nearly one in five has at least one classroom with a radon level above the 4 pCi/l (Pico-Curies per liter) action level - the level at which EPA recommends that schools take action to reduce occupant exposure. EPA estimates that more than seventy thousand (70,000) schoolrooms in use today have high radon levels.
