EPA Map of Florida Radon Zones Below
FLORIDA - The U.S. EPA and the U.S. Geological Survey have evaluated the
radon potential in the U.S. and have developed this map to assist National, State, and
local organizations to target their resources and to assist building code officials in
deciding whether radon-resistant features are applicable in new construction. This map is
not intended to be used to determine if a home in a given zone should be tested for radon.
Homes with elevated levels of radon have been found in all three zones. All homes should
be tested regardless of geographic location. The map assigns each of the 3,141 counties in
the U.S. to one of three zones based on radon potential. Each zone designation reflects
the average short-term radon measurement that can be expected to be measured in a building
without the implementation of radon control methods. The radon zone designation of the
highest priority is Zone 1.
Zone 1 Highest Radon Potential
(greater than 4 pCi/L)
Zone 2 Moderate Radon Potential (from 2 to 4 pCi/L)
Zone 3 Low Radon Potential (less than 2 pCi/L)
- Important: Consult the EPA
Map of Radon Zones document (EPA-402-R-93-071) before using this map. This document
contains information on radon potential variations within counties. EPA also recommends
that this map be supplemented with any available local data in order to further understand
and predict the radon potential of a specific area. This and other indoor air quality
publications can be ordered through the IAQ INFO Clearinghouse.
