When: June 25, 2019 from 8:00am-5:00pm
Continuing Education on June 24, 2019
EPA-State only meeting on June 26, 2019
The meeting is being held at no cost and is intended to bring together interested parties concerned with protecting the public from unnecessary exposure of radon in homes, schools, public and private buildings.
The Stakeholder’s meeting is being hosted by the Maryland Department of the Environment in collaboration with the Conference of Radiation Control Program Directors (CRCPD), the Region 3 office of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Maryland Department of Health, Delaware Department of Health and Social Services, District of Columbia Department of the Environment, Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection and the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources.
This meeting will bring interested stakeholders together to discuss common issues, provide insight into future radon risk reduction action, share perspectives, educate and network. This meeting will focus on radon risk reduction and looking at the latest developments in testing and mitigation. We believe that meetings such as this will better provide all of us with ways to assist the public and reduce radon exposures. Speakers will include internationally recognized radon experts, the US Environmental Protection Agency, state and local radon professionals.
