SUPPLEMENTAL HAZARD DISCLOSURE ITEMS
Radon Zone maps are available at the EPA's website. The EPA Map of Radon Zones was developed using five factors to determine radon potential: indoor radon measurements; geology; aerial radioactivity; soil permeability; and, foundation type. Radon potential assessment is based on geologic provinces. Radon Index Matrix is the quantitative assessment of radon potential. Confidence Index Matrix shows the quantity and quality of the data used to assess radon potential. Geologic Provinces were adapted to county boundaries for the Map of Radon Zones. Sections 307 and 309 of the Indoor Radon Abatement Act of 1988 (IRAA) directed EPA to list and identify areas of the U.S. with the potential for elevated indoor radon levels. EPA’s Map of Radon Zones assigns each of the 3,141 counties in the U.S. to one of three zones based on radon potential.

The California Land Conservation Act of 1965, also known as the Williamson Act, allows contracts between landowners and local governments that restrict parcels of land to agricultural or open space use in exchange for reduced property tax assessments. Local governments receive annual payments (subvention) from the State of California that help make up for lost property tax revenue. Los Angeles, San Francisco, Del Norte, Yuba, Inyo and Modoc Counties do not participate in the program. A Williamson Act contract runs with the land and is binding on all successors in interest of the landowner.
