Radon Poster Contest Gets Underway

October 2, 2017 • Deseret News

SALT LAKE CITY — Utah students are urged to help increase awareness of radon by participating in the 2017 National Radon Poster Contest. Radon is a naturally occurring, invisible and odorless gas that can enter homes through cracks in the basement floor or from well water. According to the Utah Department of Environmental Quality, 1 in 3 Utah homes have elevated levels of radon, which has been linked to lung cancer. The contest is being held in partnership with the DEQ, the Utah Department of Health, the Utah Cancer Action Network and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Children ages 9-18 are eligible to participate. Participants will compete in three categories: grades four through six; grades seven through nine; and grades 10 thought 12. Read more here.

August 23, 2017 • CRCPD

Notice of Intent To Establish Voluntary Criteria for Radon Credentialing Organizations A notice of availability was published Wednesday, August, 23, 2017, in the Federal Register seeking public feedback on a proposed approach for developing voluntary criteria for organizations that credential radon service providers. The comment period for this action closes on November 23, 2017. Currently, states receiving indoor radon grants from EPA may only list providers credentialed by one or both of two recognized credentialing bodies or their state-run certification program. These criteria will establish an ongoing and open evaluation process for organizations wanting to credential radon service providers and will help states ensure high-quality radon services are available to their citizens.
