Radon Mission Statement

Marine Corps Installation East-Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune (MCIEAST-MCB CAMLEJ) is committed to supporting the operating forces, tenant commands, military personnel, and families.  The command is currently sampling indoor air quality to implement the Department of the Navy’s program to identify, mitigate, and prevent radon in Navy/Marine Corps-occupied buildings.  In buildings with elevated indoor radon levels, MCIEAST-MCB CAMLEJ will lower the radon levels to acceptable levels.

Radon Assessment:

The Navy Radon Assessment and Mitigation Program (NAVRAMP) is the DON program to identify, mitigate, and prevent radon contamination in Navy/Marine Corps-occupied buildings.  MCIEAST-MCB CAMLEJ is implementing the NAVRAMP on Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune and Marine Corps Air Station New River.
