EPA, state officials to discuss radon plan at conference


EPA representatives and health officials from Missouri, Iowa and Nebraska will gather in Columbia, Mo. tomorrow to discuss how to address the health threat of radon in our soil – a problem especially serious in Iowa, where the radioactive gas kills some 400 people each year.

Agencies have been working together to forge a risk reduction plan for radon, and the goal of the conference is to engage key stakeholders and help direct the next phases of the program, according to an EPA release.
