Lucerne school wants to air away radioactive gas for the time being

In a primary school in Hitzkirch LU, the reference value for the radioactive gas radon was slightly exceeded. The school would like to counteract this with regular airing. Some parents of the school children are still worried.

In the Hitzkirch primary school, the limit value for the radioactive noble gas radon was slightly exceeded.

It cannot be recognized by the eye or the nose – and yet it is dangerous. The radioactive noble gas radon penetrates through the earth’s surface into poorly insulated buildings and can cause lung cancer if inhaled over a longer period of time.

A radon concentration of 378 Becquerel per cubic meter was measured in a primary school in Hitzkirch LU, which slightly exceeds the reference value of 300 Bq/m3. The school will not be cleared because of this. Classes in the affected classroom continue. But it is aired regularly.
