When will my RadNet station get exposure rate measurement capability?

It will take time for the EPA to add exposure rate measurement to all locations. As part of normal RadNet maintenance, the EPA is adding exposure rate measurement capability to each monitor’s gamma detection system when the currently installed gamma detection system requires repair. Monitors in the ten largest cities, Washington D.C. and a number of other sites already have exposure rate measurement added to their gamma detection system. View the list of RadNet air monitors with exposure rate measurement capability.
