Georgia Radon Data Shown in Maps

by Margaret Henderson

The Georgia radon program website has been updated to include an interactive map of radon testing done through the program from 2003-2017. The website notes: “The map below indicates areas at risk for higher levels of radon. Click the map to see your county. Please note that this data is based on test results between March 2003 and July 2017. There were insufficient data to determine the radon levels for counties without color. This map only serves as an approximation of the likelihood that your home contains higher radon levels.”

When clicking on a county, results are shown as, for example:

County: Crawford

Tests Completed: 6

Elevated results: 2

Percent Elevated:

Highest Result: 7.7 pCi/L

The percent of homes tested exceeding 4 pCi/L is shown by graded color on the map, which is available as a pdf for printing. Another map of radon readings is provided for reference by a link to the Georgia Department of Community Affairs. This map includes data reported by zip code by homeowners between Jan 2006 – September 2015.
