In the upcoming USEPA Region 8 Stakeholders Radon Conference to be held in Westminster, Colorado, Colorado presentations will feature experiences of city and county officials, with opening remarks from Chrystine Kelley, of the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE), Radon Program Manager.
In Colorado, about half the homes have radon levels higher than the USEPA recommended action level of 4 picoCuries per liter (pCi/L), according to the CDPHE website.
City and county officials from the City of Aspen and Garfield County will give their local perspectives on collaborating to increase the test kit return rates. Jefferson County representatives will discuss their program’s effort with Child Care Centers and Radon Resistant New Construction. Boulder County officials will discuss the “Public Health Regional Roadmap.”
