Abstract
To determine the significance of radium-226 in reclaimed land on the radon daughter levels in structures built on the land, a limited field study was conducted. In general, the data from this study coupled with existing information indicates that radium-226 concentrations in soil beneath structures significantly affects the radon daughter levels within the structures. The data collected over a five-week period suggests that structures built on reclaimed land have radon daughter levels significantly greater than structures not built on reclaimed land.
