Castlegar wants provincial help for radon mitigation

Castlegar is hoping the provincial government can help pay to remediate homes with high radon levels.

City councillor Kevin Chernoff says that’s the gist of a motion they adopted this week.

Recent testing in Castlegar found 59% of homes had radon levels that exceed national standards.

Castlegar successfully lobbied the province to change the BC building code to address radon.
