Re: Neighbor's Radon Pipe Pointed at My Windows!
Keep in mind that the purpose of the neighbor's vent is to prevent buildup -- high concentrations -- of radon gas in their living space. If all is working properly, the concentration of radon gas coming out of this vent should be at safe levels -- in fact, it should be no more than what is naturally emitted from an area of your own backyard equal to the footprint of their house.
Wherever radon (a naturally occurring gas) is present, it is constantly emitted from open ground but is dissipated by normal air currents so it never gets to a hazardous level. It becomes a problem when you build over that ground, because then the radon that is emitted can't dissipate; instead, it concentrates in the enclosed space of the building. That is why remediation is necessary: to prevent the concentration of radon gas in enclosed spaces.
If I was in a similar situation to the original poster, I wouldn't be worried.
