On Tuesday night, Mayor Harris, proclaimed the month of January 2018 as Radon Action Month in Erie, Colorado. The proclamation was made in conjunction with other cities, counties, and states around the country who in partnership with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), who are taking the lead in observing National Radon Action Month.
Half of Colorado homes have radon levels that could cause health concerns. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recommends installing mitigation systems in any home with a level of 4 picocuries or more per liter of indoor air. If your home already has a mitigation system, you still should test every few years to ensure the system is working properly.
Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas responsible for more than 500 lung cancer deaths in Colorado each year. The colorless, odorless, tasteless gas can enter homes through cracks in the foundation or other openings and can accumulate unless properly mitigated. Long-term radon exposure is the leading cause of lung cancer in nonsmokers and the second-leading cause of lung cancer in smokers. For more information, visit www.coloradoradon.info.
