This report is to document the results of an activity which forms part of a program intended to demonstrate means of controlling indoor radon levels in structures built on Florida phosphate lands. The natural radon content of the soil is elevated in some parts of the Florida phosphate lands, resulting in elevated radon concentrations in the soil gas. If building construction is such as to provide pathways, or routes of entry, between the interior of the building and the soil below, then this radon-bearing soil gas may enter the building and result in elevated indoor levels. This report therefore documents a review of current building practices, with the intention of identifying routes of entry. Based upon this knowledge, certain modifications to building practices may be seen as a means of reducing indoor radon levels.
