The report gives the results of measurements of radon concentrations that were made in the vicinity of the uranium mill tailings pile of SOHIO L-Bar site near Seboyeta, New Mexico, using passive Environmental Radon Monitors. Radon concentrations were determined monthly and the results of the data showed that radon concentrations decreased with distance from the centroid of the tailings pile.

"Measurements of radon concentrations were made between November 1985 and November 1986 in the vicinity of the uranium mill tailings pile of SOHIO L-Bar site near Seboyeta, New Mexico. The data can be used for exposure and risk estimates as discussed in the National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP's) for radon-222 emission form licensed uranium mill tailings. Twenty-two Passive Environmental Radon Monitors (PERM's) were used in this investigation. They were placed 400, 600, and 800 meters away from the centroid of the pile. In addition, a background PERM station was established 1200 meters to the north and upwind from the centroid of the tailings. Radon concentrations were determined monthly by analyses of a pair of thermoluminescent dosimeters (TLDs) located in each PERM. Results of the data show that radon concentrations decreased with distance form the centroid of the tailings pile."--Abstract.
