I don't think that the original post went to the list. But my answer was general enough that I sent that one to all, having cut out some links that came to me because I wasn't going to do that at first. EPA has maps. Here--scroll down so you aren't tempted to download huge .pdf files: http://www.epa.gov/radon/zonemap.html Kim seems to be in a "don't worry much zone." I'm in a potentially high zone but I think it's not "everywhere" but really really spotty locations that are high. It all depends on geology. Limestone areas(presumably Karst formation--caves and cracks) are the worst. That's probably true of most of the potentially high areas. The low areas are more likely consistently low, although the EPA says that there ARE occasional pockets of radon even in the low areas. Here are the details from the Alabama Shoals area from about a year ago--and that's the most likely area in Alabama to have radon. http://www.aces.edu/crd/radon/publications/newsarticles/times-daily-1-20-04.htm ............ Kim wondered: i'm getting a whole lot more cob emails lately, which is great, but obviously i'm not getting all of them. what was the radon reference? what site had maps of radon?
