Description

The boundary map shows radon test results by county. The test results are provided on a monthly basis to the Department of Health’s Radon Program from a contracted radon testing laboratory. The color grading of the counties represent the average radon level of homes tested in the counties.The radon test results illustrated on this map may not be reflective of all radon tests completed in New York State.

Notes
Notes
The picoCurie (pCi) is a unit of radioactivity which represents one trillionth of a Curie or 2.22 nuclear-transformations/minute. The NYS DOH and the EPA use 4 pCi/L as a recommended action level. When testing indicates that the radon level in the lowest primary living area of the home is at or above this action level, the NYS DOH recommends that the homeowner take appropriate corrective action. PLEASE NOTE: The data used in this dataset are specific to basement and first floor screening radon test kit results and are used for decision making and mapping. In some geographic locations, only a few radon test results are available from using the DOH Radon test kits; therefore care must be given in the interpretation of the data and it is advised that the best measurement of radon for your location can be determined by requesting a Radon Test kit by utilizing this URL: http://www.health.ny.gov/forms/doh-2247.pdf
Disclaimers
Limitations
The radon test results obtained from this database may not be reflective of all radon tests completed in New York State. There are approximately 30,000-40,000 radon tests completed each year in New York State that are not purchased through the NYSDOH Radon Program. These tests are completed by resident home owners, inspectors, schools, etc. across the state.
