Radon is a naturally occurring gas that is found in many places where rock formations are common. This is a radioactive gas, that is a result of the natural decay of radioactive elements. Radon is not healthy to breath and if it is in sufficient concentrations can be harmful to health. Some residents have tested for radon and found detectable levels present on Anarchist Mountain. Some of these residents have taken steps to vent the radon from their buildings.
We are fortunate to have connected with two experts on radon gas, who will be coming to Anarchist Mountain to make a presentation to us.
The seminar we are holding will have experts to discuss what radon is, how it can accumulate in buildings, how detection is done, and some discussion of the remedies to vent radon gas.
