The paper discusses a case study of radon diagnostics and mitigation procedures performed in a school researched by the U.S. EPA in New York State. It discusses building construction details, radon diagnostic measurements, mitigation system details, and post-mitigation radon levels. Elevated radon levels have been identified in school buildings throughout the U.S. and, as a result, the EPA has been researching radon reduction techniques for schools since early 1988. Initial research has addressed subslab depressurization, a successful radon reduction technique for many houses. Radon levels in schools can be influenced by the heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning (HVAC) system's effect on the pressure relationship of the building envelope. As a result, HVAC strategies for radon control have been used successfully in some schools.
