The primary goal of the Utah Division of Waste Management and Radiation Control's (DWMRC) Indoor Radon Program is to reduce the level of indoor radon in the state of Utah to concentrations less than the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) action level of 4 pCi/L (pico-Curies per liter).
The Radon program is partially funded by the State Indoor Radon Grant from the EPA. The Division of Waste Management and Radiation Control, in addition to responding to telephone inquiries from the public, provides education through public outreach, conducts ''target area" indoor radon surveys, and individualized assistance to homeowners and public agencies concerning all aspects of the indoor radon hazard problem.
The Indoor Radon Program focuses its efforts in the following five areas:
- Radon Resistant Construction
- Real Estate Disclosure and Testing
- Local Government Coalitions
- Public School Testing
- Radon Awareness (Testing and Mitigation)
