The report gives results of a demonstration/research project to evaluate sub-slab depressurization (SSD) techniques for radon mitigation in North Florida where the housing stock is primarily slab-on-grade, and the sub-slab medium typically consists of native soil and sand. Objectives were to develop and test the use of a soil depressurization computer model as a design tool, to optimize the SSD design for North Florida houses, and to observe the performance and durability of the installed systems.
