Abstract
The paper presents data on indoor radon concentrations in the buildings of children institutions in a number of regions of the Russian Federation. The results of detailed radon surveys in 132 buildings of children institutions in 85 settlements of six districts of the Leningrad Region conducted in 2018-2020 were analyzed. In 14 buildings of children institutions in the Leningrad region (10.5% of all surveyed buildings) the hygienic limit on the indoor radon EEC was exceeded, the maximum measured value of radon concentration in the premises of children institutions reached 2200 Bq/m3. It seems appropriate to extend the experience of cooperation between the Directorate of the Rospotrebnadzor for the Leningrad Region and the Saint-Petersburg Research Institute of Radiation Hygiene after Professor P.V. Ramzaev in conducting detailed radon surveys in children institutions on other regions of the Russian Federation that face problems with indoor radon.
