The Office of Radiation Programs, EPA, is developing standards for radioactive air pollutants under the authority of the Clean Air Act, as amended in 1977. Technically enhanced sources of naturally occurring radioactivity, such as underground uranium mines, may release large quantities of radon-222 into the atmosphere. Because of the potential adverse health effects to population groups, underground uranium mines warrant investigation as to the feasibility of reducing the radon-222 releases. This study addresses various control options for a hypothetical mine.
