Summary
Abstract: from EPA Map of Radon Zones home page:
http://www.epa.gov/radon/zonemap.html

The Map was developed using five factors to determine radon potential: indoor
radon measurements; geology; aerial radioactivity; soil permeability; and,
foundation type. Radon potential assessment is based on geologic provinces.
Radon Index Matrix is the quantitative assessment of radon potential.

radon potential variations within counties. EPA also recommends that
this map be supplemented with any available local data in order to
further understand and predict the radon potential of a specific
area. If you have questions about radon in water, you should contact
