Significantly elevated radon levels were detected after a radon measurement over a period of twelve months in several schools in the three radon precautionary areas of the Saalfeld-Rudolstadt district. The district office reacted with immediate radon measures.
The radon measurement data in the Gräfenthal elementary school and the Oberweißbach regular school exceeded the legal reference value of 300 becquerels per cubic meter of room air. The school administrations were informed about the results and the associated immediate radon measures. Towards the end of the year, the evaluations of the Katzhütte elementary school and the Meuselbach-Schwarzmühle elementary school (Schwarzatal town) will be available.
Radon Emergency Measures as a quick solution against Radon Gas
Radon emergency measures, which - as the name suggests - can be implemented immediately, are generally regular ventilation of all rooms. In addition, at the Gräfenthal regular school, the workroom was closed off for classroom use because the radon levels in the basement were a cause for concern. A permanent solution to prevent the intrusion of the naturally occurring radioactive radon gas is professional radon remediation.
