Our Review of
EPA's Home Buyer's and Seller's Guide to Radon

Home Buyer's and Seller's Guide to Radon is a publication by the Environmental Protection Agency. This page is part of our review of the guide. Our review is a series of pages, one per each of the guide, and here we are on the Index page. Well, not much to review here, except that it's a well done index and great to have for looking up specifics. We added a few topics related to Lake Tahoe, since our review contains some Tahoe relevant information like the typical radon levels in homes.

In the guide you can find these important Radon topics and more. This is not an exact copy of the index, but a selection of topics in our review.
