    Given the climate conditions of 20, years ago, precipitation and glacial meltwater from most of western Montana’s mountainous regions would have ended in Lake Missoula. At its largest extent, Lake Missoula’s depth exceeded 2, feet and may have held cubic miles of water—as much as Lake Erie and Lake Ontario combined. Detecting Regional Groundwater Discharge to the Clark Fork River Faculty Mentor: W. Payton Gardner In this study, Radon ( Rn) measured in stream water and groundwater was used to constrain the quantity of groundwater discharge along a 22 km reach of the Clark Fork River as it runs through Missoula, MT. Dissolved.

All data are available through MBMG’s Ground Water radon, and incremental streamflow to estimate (Yw) of the Belt Supergroup. The Wallace Formation in western Montana is varied and includes carbonate, argillite, and quartzite sequences. In the Lolo area, the Wallace Formation is primarily an argillite. These rocks are faulted and.

During summerthe U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) collected water samples for analysis of radon concen­ trations from 56 wells in western Montana including wells used for public-supply, domestic, stock, and irrigation pur­ by: 1.

Radon is a concern of many residents in Wyoming because breathing air containing high levels of radon poses a health risk. Radon is second only to cigarette smoking in causing lung cancer in the United States and is estimated to cause between 5, lung-cancer fatalities annually (Cothern, ).

Geochemical tracers were used to investigate groundwater–lake interactions and to map nutrient concentrations within Georgetown Lake, a ha lake situated at m above sea level between two mountain ranges in western Montana.

Radon was used to identify locations and relative amounts of groundwater inflow to the lake, and nutrients. The acre Lockwood Solvent Ground Water Plume Superfund site is in Billings, Montana. Insampling found benzene and chlorinated solvents in water supply wells. Investigations identified an area of groundwater contamination originating from Beall Trailers of Montana and Soco West (formerly Brenntag West).

There are only half a dozen radon health mines in the United States, and all six of them are located within twenty minutes' drive of each other in western Montana. Samples and Excerpts from the Montana Ground-Water Atlas.

Map Description. Surficial Aquifers -Water. ABSTRACT Radon is one of the sources of nuclear contamination in water and the largest contributor of the total radiation received by the general public from natural radioactive sources.

Human exposure to high doses of radon through inhalation as gas or ingestion in water. The simple measurement and sampling technique encourages further use of radon to examine groundwater-lake water interaction. Lake, western Montana, USA. lake-ground water interactions have. The maps of depth to water by Hackett et al.

() and Dunn () can be considered water table depths because many of the wells monitored were hand driven well points. On the other hand, maps by Slagle et al. () and presented in the ground water gradient grids may be representative of a mixture of water table and ground-water level.

Did a radon test on a house for sale. The radon levels with a RadaLink monitor came back higher than pCi/l. The sellers want to have another test done but want to open the windows and turn on fans to air out the house. They feel that since the house has not been lived in for 16 months, that airing out the house 12 hours before another test will lower the average radon.

OVERVIEW Sections and of the Indoor Radon Abatement Act (IRAA) direct EPA to identify areas of the United States that have the potential to produce elevated levels of radon, EPA, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), and the Association of American State Geologists (AASG) have worked closely over the past several years to produce a series of.

We pride ourselves on providing some of the best inspections in Montana – and our reports reflect our dedication to details as well. Our inspection reports outline all of our findings on your home inspection. From the maintenance issues we find, all the way to major structural or mechanical issues.

Annual groundwater fluxes were determined using a radon mass balance equated to about 55 ± 50 % of the total volume of water input (via direct precipitation and groundwater) into the lake.

I have to wonder if Hamilton may have lived in a home with a high radon gas level. Western Montana has hot pockets of radon gas, a silent but deadly killer. There are only half a dozen radon health mines in the United States, and all six of them are located within twenty minutes' drive of each other in western Montana.
