Nero estimates, and the EPA has recently confirmed, that perhaps one house in a thousand has levels above 20 picocuries per liter of air, exposures that wouldn't be allowable even for nuclear workers.
Data on civilian reactor emissions of radioactive iodine and strontium, published each year by the Brookhaven National Laboratory, indicate that from 1970 to 1987 some 370 trillion picocuries of these deadly fission products were released into the atmosphere, enough to expose Americans to a cumulated total of 1.
The lower-bound estimate of annual willingness to pay is about 35 cents per person per bequerel or $13 per person per picocurie reduction.
Because of these findings, mines are currently being designed to provide better ventilation so that radon levels do not exceed 60 picocuries per liter of air.
5 percent of the structures tested registered radiation levels over 4 picocuries per liter of air.
Two years later, the EPA established 4 picocuries of radon per liter of air (pCi/l) as the "recommended action level.
Results must be reported in picocuries per liter (pCi/l) and provided to the individual consumer within ten days of receipt of the detector by the laboratory.
Approximately 50%-60% of all private drilled wells in New Hampshire produce water with radon concentrations between 300 and 4,000 picocuries per liter (pCi/L) (New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services, 2009).
Currently, waste at a concentration of more than 5 picocuries per gram--most of it--must be trucked out of North Dakota, with the majority going to three landfills in Montana, Idaho and Colorado.
The results indicate that 25% of homes haves a radon level at or above the EPA Action Level of 4 picocuries per liter of air (pCi/l) for indoor radon exposure.
As the agency works its way through the process of evaluating its standards--which the spokes-woman says now cover only the ingestion pathway, not inhalation or dermal routes--one starting point will be its current thresholds: 30 [micro]g/L for uranium, 5 picocuries per liter (pCi/L) for combined radium-226 and -228, 15 pCi/L for gross alpha radioactivity, and 4 millirems per year for beta/gamma radioactivity.
Air that has less than 4 picocuries of radon per liter is generally thought to be acceptable, and homeowners can easily buy a test kit at a hardware store.
