The purpose of this document is to assist the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in updating the radon-relevant portions of its 'Technologies and Costs' (T&C) documents developed to support the 1991 proposed radionuclides rule. This document is organized as follows: List of Abbreviations; List of Definitions and Conversion Units; Table of Contents; List of Figures; List of Tables; (Chapter 1) Introduction: Presents general information on the chemical and physical properties of radon and the regulatory background, and defines the objectives of this document; (Chapter 2) Removal of Radon from Drinking Water: Discusses technologies and techniques for removing radon from drinking water sources. Technologies presented include various aeration technologies, granular activated carbon (GAC) treatment, and other low technology radon removal techniques. Also, this chapter discusses pre- and post treatment requirements for selected radon removal technologies; (Chapter 3) Best Management Practices: Presents an overview of best management practices (BMPs) for removing moderate amounts of radon from drinking water sources; (Chapter 4) Radon Removal Costs: Provides information on available cost models used for costing various radon removal technologies and presents costs for various system size categories and types; and (Appendix A) Provides supporting information for cost analysis and possible off-gas emissions regulations.
