A three-apartment house north of Rome with a relatively high radon concentration has been monitored since 1987. Weekly measurements of radon concentration have been made simultaneously in the soil underneath the house, in different rooms/or floors, in the water well, etc. A lengthy restoration of one of the apartments has provided an opportunity to study the different contributory factors to the indoor radon concentration. Since it was anticipated that mitigation efforts needed to remove the wall dampness would also reduce the indoor radon level, no remedial action against radon was planned.
