Radon Testing

Baumholder, Smith Barracks, Elementary School, Bldg. 8033 and Bldg. 8033A, were recently tested for radon and findings were just slightly above the remediation action threshold level (see accompanying PDF test results). Findings were predominantly insignificant radon exceedance of the threshold level of 4 pCi/L in 9 of 24 rooms within the elementary school (Bldg. 8033 and 8033A). Although the results partially exceed the threshold level, there is no immediate health risk.
