Radium Hot Springs

Radium Hot Springs, informally and commonly called Radium, is a village of approximately 800 people situated in the East Kootenay region of British Columbia. The village is named for the hot springs located in the nearby Kootenay National Park. From Banff, Alberta, it is accessible via Highway 93.The hot springs were named after the radioactive element when an analysis of the water showed that it contained small traces of radon which is a decay product of radium. The radiation dosage from bathing in the pools is inconsequential; approximately 0.13 millirem from the water for a half-hour bathing. The air concentration of radon is about 23 picocuries per litre which is higher than the level (4 picocuries per litre) at which mitigation is necessary at residences; but is also inconsequential (about 0.7 millirem for a half-hour bathing) from a dose impact perspective.AmenitiesSeveral golf courses are located nearby, along with 675 hotel and motel rooms.Hot springsThe hot springs complex itself contains two large pools, one with hot water for soaking
