JFK Presidential Library and Museum

Fuss & O’Neill EnviroScience was hired to conduct radon testing at the John F. Kennedy Library and Museum, the official repository for original papers and correspondence of the Kennedy Administration.

Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that travels through soil and enters buildings through cracks in the foundation. In response to a request from the museum’s Facilities Manager, we conducted sampling for the carcinogen. Our testing followed protocols from the USEPA document, Radon Measurement in Schools.

Working with a stringent deadline set by our client, the National Archives & Records Administration, we developed a sampling plan for the lower levels of the building, submitted a proposal, conducted the radon testing, and provided a final report in less than 10 days.
