Abstract
The Landsdowne Radiation site consists of a duplex located at 105/107 East Stratford Avenue in Lansdowne, Pennsylvania. The dwellings are contaminated with radium and other radionuclides as the result of work done in one of the houses to refine radium and produce medical devices from 1924 through 1944. Radiation levels in the houses exceed current EPA guidelines and the Center for Disease Control has issued a Public Health Advisory which states that, '..exposure levels are in excess of those considered safe for human habitation.' The selected remedial action includes permanent relocation of the residents in 105 and 107 East Stratford Avenue. This will entail purchasing the property at fair market value under the Uniform Relocation Act.
