Radon Control

SECTION 23-61-1



   § 23-61-1  Legislative intent. –

The general assembly recognizes that radon is an odorless, colorless,

tasteless, and radioactive gas that occurs naturally in soil and groundwater;

that radon enters homes and buildings through openings in foundations, decays

to form radon progeny, and unless vented to the atmosphere, accumulates in

buildings and becomes hazardous to human health, and prolonged exposure to

elevated concentrations of radon decay products has been associated with

increases in the risk of lung cancer. The general assembly recognizes that

there is a need to protect human health and prevent exposure to elevated

concentrations of radon.
