Frequent Questions

Does RadNet cover the whole U.S.? How does EPA decide where to set up air monitors?

RadNet air monitoring and sampling stations are widely distributed across the entire U.S. The system is designed to follow trends in environmental radioactivity levels and to measure widespread impacts from incidents that occur in the U.S. or abroad. RadNet air monitoring locations were selected to provide optimum population and geographical coverage throughout the United States. These stations are widely dispersed, covering each geographical region and most major population centers. EPA has an additional 40 monitors, which are portable and can be deployed as needed anywhere in the U.S.
