Description

The DOH Radon Program contracts with a radon testing laboratory to provide short-term charcoal radon test kits, radon test kit analysis and results to residents. The contract laboratory provides the radon test results to the individual home owner and the DOH Radon Program. All testing data is entered into our database. From this database, we are able to create radon prevalence maps, design special outreach activities and campaigns, and track the location in the home where the detector was placed. 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. A map by town is currently not available, but users can view a map by county. The county map is Radon Test Results By County: Beginning 1987 and can be accessed from the main catalog. For more information, check out http://www.health.ny.gov/environmental/radiological/radon/radon.htm or go to the "About" tab.

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
