National Radon Program Services

National Radon Program Services (NRPS) is administered by Kansas State University (K-State), as a partner in the Midwest Universities Radon Consortium. NRPS provides national radon services and projects for the US EPA. Responsibilities include the National Radon Poster Contest, National Radon Hotlines, referrals to State Radon Programs, Radon Test Kit Orders and Coupons, Radon Mitigation Promotion, and other technical assistance and outreach activities. 

National Radon Safety Board

The National Radon Safety Board (NRSB) website seeks to encourage the highest standards of practice and integrity in radon services through the development of independent standards and procedures for certifying, approving and accrediting radon testers, mitigators, measurement devices, chambers and laboratories. It is an independent, nonprofit organization modeled on the American Board of Health Physics and is governed by a Certification Panel representing different facets of the radon industry, home inspectors, state governments, and consumer interests. Lists of certified testers can be found here, as well as training information for aspiring testers and mitigators.

United States Geological Survey

The United States Geological Survey (USGS) website informs readers of geology, biology, mapping, and water. The site provides maps of topography and geology, GIS maps, and weather patterns, among other things. The USGS site also offers some information about karst topography and its relevance to radon.
