Flier educates builders on radon

Adam Jensen

In an effort to educate and persuade more contractors to use radon-resistant new construction methods when they rebuild in the Angora fire area, Radon at Tahoe is distributing a flier to all building sites showing them how to build to keep radon out.

The flier also will be available in the El Dorado County and city of South Lake Tahoe building departments, according to a statement from the radon mitigation advocates.

One side of the flier is a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency “Building Radon Out” poster. The other side lists the building requirements for radon-resistant new construction and encourages builders to hire a certified radon mitigation specialist or read available books on the subject and do it themselves.
