||The results of a yearlong study to evaluate the public health aspects of atmospheric radon 222 concentrations in the vicinity of uranium mill tailings piles are presented. Samples were collected from 13 onpile and 44 offpile stations in the four study cities of Grand Junction and Durango, Colo., and Monticello and Salt Lake City, Utah. The tailings pile at Monticello has been covered and stabilized; the other three are uncovered and unstabilized. The side slopes of the pile at Grand Junction are partially stabilized with a grass cover. A technique for taking integrated air samples for radon near uranium tailings piles has been developed, tested, and proven through use in the field. Atmospheric concentrations of radon in areas near uranium tailings piles have been evaluated as an index to radiation exposure of the population. The results indicate no significant radiation exposure to the public from this source. (Author)
