New Mexico Public Health Tracking Tool: Radon Outreach

by Margaret Henderson

New Mexico’s Environment Department's Indoor Radon Outreach Program provides general radon information through the Public Health Tracking Tool
https://nmtracking.org/environment/air/IndoorQuality.html

The information explains how to get radon test kits, about mitigation and radon resistant new construction, and provides a link to the state’s Indoor Outreach Radon Program.

In New Mexico, eight counties are classified as Zone 1 counties, with radon concentrations expected to exceed 4 pCi/L, the recommended EPA action level (EPA radon map). They are:
• Bernailillo;
• Colfax;
• Mora;
• Ro Arriba;
• San Juan;
• San Miguel;
• Santa Fe; and
• Taos.
In Santa Fe and Taos Counties, 32% of the test results reported levels equal to or exceeding 4 pCi/L. The number of Zone 2 counties (expected levels of 2-4pCi/l) is 17 and no counties are in Zone 3 (less than 2 pCi/L).
