An evaluation is presented on state-of-the-art radon daughter control measures for proposed structures which have radon exhalation through the foundations. Five technologies are evaluated for cost-effectiveness: ventilation, polymeric sealants, excavation, ventilated crawl space construction, and improved slab construction. The implementation of these control measures by the builder through interaction with local health authorities is also evaluated.
Presented at the Health Physics Society Tenth Midyear Topical Symposium on Natural Radioactivity in Man's Environment, Saratoga Springs, New York, Oct. 10-13, 1976. Includes appendixes. Includes bibliographical references (pages 59-62).
