Radon in water test

Radon concentration in wall water may contribute to radon quantity in the air of the home, which cannot be mitigated by a radon in air mitigation system. The MA DEP recommends remediating radon in well water when quantities exceed 10,000 picocuries per liter of air. At this concentration, the radon in the air concentration is elevated by about 1 picocurie per liter of air.
