Southern Illinois Radon Awareness Initiative

The free test kit portion of the Southern Illinois Radon Awareness Initiative ended at 4:30pm on June 30, 2009.  I am pleased to announce that 998 of the 1,000 test kits that were available were given away.  The next milestone in the initiative is July 14, 2009.  In order to qualify for one of the 10 free radon mitigation systems, test kits received as part of the Initiative from American Lung Association of Illinois must be postmarked by this date.

 

January is National Radon Action Month.  Winter is a good time to check the radon levels in your house.  Please contact us if you need help locating a test kit. 

Representative Karen May has introduced HB4789 which will impact radon levels in new houses. You can view the legislation and follow it's progress through the legislative process at:
