Nebraska Radon Levels
EPA Radon Levels
Nebraska has 93 counties and 53 (57%) have been assigned Zone 1 counties by the EPA. Zone 1 counties have the highest potential to have homes test higher than 4 pCi/L. Nebraska's state radon zone average is 1.41, which is the average of all county zone ratings the EPA has assigned the state, ranking it 15 among all states.
The radon levels in Nebraska are well above average in many areas of the state. As such, there’s an increased risk for all homeowners, which is why we recommend testing exposure levels at least twice a year.

Nebraska Radon Real Estate Requirements
Does the state of Nebraska require radon testing for all real estate transactions? No
However both the state of Nebraska and the EPA recommend that a home or residence should be tested before a real estate transaction is carried out. Even though Nebraska does not require radon testing, we certainly recommend you have a test performed before you purchase a home. If you decide to perform a test after and find elevated levels, there is no reason to panic. Nebraska radon mitigation is not expensive compared to the dangers and a system can be implemented in a relatively short period of time.
Nebraska Radon Map
Zone 1 (1): Potential for radon levels above 4 pCi/L according to EPA
Zone 2 (2): Potential for radon levels between 2 pCi/L and 4 pCi/L according to the EPA
Zone 3 (3): Lowest EPA level with expected radon levels at or below 2 pCi/L
Disclaimer: It is strongly recommended that all households, schools and office spaces test radon levels individually. The EPA Radon Zone data is not an indicator of individual test results, but a guideline for strategic planning. Toxic radon levels can be found in all counties, regardless of their zone rating. While we make efforts to keep this information up to date, it is derived from thirdparty sources which may not be accurate or reflect the most current statistics.
Nebraska is the 16th most expansive in terms of size, and the 37th most populous. It also happens to be the 43rd most densely populated state in the country.
Nebraska does have an active radon program, dedicated to educating citizens about the risks associated with the deadly gas. You can find more information on Radon, testing and mitigation at the official page.
