Engineering Extension announces new radon chamber services for radon industry

Submitted by Mary Rankin

Radon program operations, conducted by Engineering Extension in the College of Engineering at Kansas State University, have added a new service for the radon industry.

A nationally certified and state-licensed radon chamber is now in operation at the Engineering Extension office in the Unger Complex. This chamber will be used for device performance testing and spiking services in support of the radon industry.

The chamber was transferred from the Radon Measurements Laboratory in Colorado Springs in March and services have been offered in Manhattan since April 9. Bruce Snead, director of Engineering Extension, is leading this new initiative. More information is available at ksuradonchamber.org and by contacting Snead at bsnead@k-state.edu

Kansas State University, as a partner in the Midwest Universities Radon Consortium, provides national radon services and projects for the U.S. EPA. Responsibilities include the National Radon Hotlines, referrals to state radon programs, radon test kit orders, radon mitigation promotion, and other technical assistance and outreach activities.
