Openness rating:

This map shows a prediction of the number of the houses in any one area that are likely to have high radon levels. Those areas in red are most at risk from radon and are called High Radon Areas. The map is based on an analysis of indoor radon measurements plus geological information including, bedrock type, quaternary geology, soil permeability and aquifer type. The areas of the map in orange and yellow are areas of medium and low risk respectively..
