Radon Protection Map For Large Building Construction 

*Note: This page contains materials in the Portable Document Format (PDF). The free Adobe Reader may be required to view these files.

These maps were developed through a comprehensive research study coordinated by the former Department of Community Affairs (DCA) in the mid-1990s.

The counties below have areas where the addition of radon resistant construction features are recommended to prevent radon problems (more than 5% of new large buildings are expected to have annual average radon levels above the EPA action level in the identified areas).

Counties not listed are those where fewer than 5% of new large buildings are expected to have elevated radon levels, so additional radon resistant construction techniques may not be needed to prevent radon problems.

Recommendations for Large Buildings (County Maps)
Alachua Duval Indian River Nassau St. Johns
Brevard Gadsden Jackson Okaloosa St. Lucie
Broward Gilchrest Jefferson Osceola Sumter
Calhoun Gulf Leon Palm Beach Suwannee
Charlotte Hamilton Levy Pasco Taylor
Citrus Hardee Liberty Pinellas Union
Columbia Hernando Madison Polk Volusia
Dade Highlands Manatee Putnam Walton

Dixie Holmes Martin Seminole

The county maps will identify areas where additional radon resistant construction features should be incorporated in new construction to reduce the likelihood of elevated radon levels in a new buildings. It does not reflect radon levels in existing structures. It should NOT be used for predicting indoor radon levels in buildings that have not been tested for radon. The only way to know if a building has a radon problem is to test the building.
