School Board to Fund Radon Screening
Prince George, B.C. – Radon screening will begin in the Prince George School District starting this August.
The decision was made at last night’s final Board meeting of the year and will cost $32,000. The money will come out of the district’s surplus funds.
The screening will take place in all schools, in active closed schools and the central administration office.
The district had considered the matter during two meetings this year and the Board also received a letter about the effects of exposure of radon from the Parent Advisory Council.
It’s been two decades since the district tested its buildings for radon. The results of the testing are expected to be released early next year.
