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 0.13mrem from the water for a half-hour bathing, around ten times average background levels. The air concentration of radon is about 23pCi per litre which is higher than the level (4 picocuries per litre) at which mitigation is necessary at residences; but is also inconsequential (about 0.7mrem for a half-hour bathing) from a dose impact perspective.GeographyRadium is located 16 km north of the tourist town of Invermere, and 105 km south of Golden, British Columbia. It is located at the junction of Highway 95 and Highway 93, in the Columbia River valley, between the river and Kootenay National Park.Take a peek at our international travel planner: Radium Hot Springs and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.
