Abstract:

An assessment of indoor radon concentrations was conducted in 46 facilities at Homestead ARB, FL. In total, 103 detectors were deployed throughout the installation. The detectors used were passive, electret ion chamber type monitors manufactured by Rad Elec Inc. Monitors were deployed for a period of at least 91 days to satisfy the requirements established in AFI 48-148 for long-term monitoring. Historical results indicate a radon risk characterization category of medium, requiring all occupied facilities on the installation to be monitored. All results from this survey were less than the Environmental Protection Agencys recommended action level of 4 pCiL.
