15 microSieverts / hour corresponds to ~150 milliSieverts / year though, which according to the xkcd graph means "lowest one-year dose clearly linked to increased cancer risk" (100 milliSieverts / year) and is 100 times higher than the limit set by the EPA in the US.

So as long as the level is 15 microSieverts / hour, then nobody will be allowed to live there. As I said above, the level is 100 times higher than the allowed habitable limit.

Feel disillusioned? I've got some great new illusions, right here!
