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

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).
