Radon Reduction Roadmap

Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Broomfield, Denver, Douglas, and Jefferson Counties are home to nearly 3 million residents, which is 55% of Colorado’s population.

It takes actions by all of us to reduce the risk and save lives. Below are actions professionals, policy-makers, homeowners, and rental property owners can take to protect children, families, and their communities:

About PHR3

The PHR3 partnership is funded by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) Cancer, Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Disease (CCPD) Grants program to identify strategies to reduce radon exposure and promote their adoption. The project includes:

  • Research on radon testing and reduction practices (including building codes) for new and existing single-family and multi-family homes within the region and throughout the U.S.
  • Promote radon awareness among the real estate community, policy makers, and building industry professionals of the risks of radon and the best techniques to reduce exposure.
  • Develop tools specifically designed for Colorado to support radon-resistant new single-family and multi-family homes, radon mitigation for existing single-family and multi-family homes and to encourage testing for builders and all property owners.
