What Are The Risks for Your County
The purpose of this Georgia radon map is to assist national, state, and local organizations to target their resources and to implement radon-resistant building codes. This map is not intended to be used to determine if a home in a given zone should be tested for radon. Homes with elevated levels of radon have been found in all three zones. All homes should be tested regardless of geographic location. As we detailed in How To Check for Radon, each home is unique based on it’s construction and underlying soil conditions.
What Do The Georgia Radon Map Colors Mean?
- Red counties have a predicted average indoor radon screening level greater than 4 pCi/L (picocuries per liter) and have the highest potential for radon gas exposure.
- Orange counties have a predicted average indoor radon screening level between 2 and 4 pCi/L (orange zones) and have a moderate potential for radon gas exposure.
- Yellow counties have a predicted average indoor radon screening level less than 2 pCi/L (yellow zones) and have a low potential for radon gas exposure.
Just because your county may be at a high risk for radon gas exposure, that doesn’t mean your home actually has a high level of radon gas. The only way to know for sure is to get a test.
