Construction work to reduce radon pollution in Schneeberg has begun

Schneeberg (dpa/sn) - With a project worth millions of euros, the radon exposure of the population in Schneeberg is to be permanently reduced. To this end, ventilation shafts are being reactivated and new ones created in old mining pits at a cost of around 26.5 million euros, as the Upper Mining Authority announced on Tuesday. The underground work and the construction of above-ground ventilation sites are expected to take about ten years. The operation of this ventilation will cost around 100,000 euros per year, it said.
