Alexandria Township is offering FREE RADON TEST KITS

Posted by Alexandria Township on January 14, 2015

ALEXANDRIA TOWNSHIP ANNOUNCES RADON ACTION FOR THE MONTH OF JANUARY

Alexandria Township, State of New Jersey, December 31, 2014–Mayor Paul Abraham announced today that the month of January has been designated Radon Action Month by Alexandria Township, in cooperation with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) Radon Program.

In announcing Radon Action Month Mayor Abraham said, “Radon is a serious health risk. It is the second leading cause of lung cancer and the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers. But because radon is invisible and odorless it is easy to ignore this potential hazard in our own homes.”

Radon is a radioactive gas that occurs naturally when uranium and radium break down in the soil and in rock formations. Radon gas moves up through the soil and finds its way into homes through cracks in the foundation and openings around pumps, pipes, and drains.

“A significant number of homes in Alexandria Township are predicted to be above the acceptable limits for radon”, Mayor Abraham said. “We would like to see as many homes tested as possible, to reduce the radon risk in Alexandria Township.”

During Radon Action Month, Alexandria Township will provide radon information; giveaway’s and free radon test kits for the first 150 township residents. Test kits will be available for purchase after that at the Clerk’s office for a nominal fee.

Radon is measured in picoCuries per liter (pCi/L) of air. The average U.S. indoor level is 1.3 pCi/L. At 4 pCi/L, the risk of lung cancer from radon is greater than the risk from fire or other home accidents. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the DEP recommend that action be taken to reduce radon levels if the level in the home is greater than or equal to 4 pCi/L.

Fortunately, testing for radon is simple and inexpensive. The DEP Radon Program can provide a list of certified companies that provide testing services or do-it-yourself test kits-residents can contact the program at 1-800-648-0394 or http://www.njradon.org. Test kits can also be obtained from many hardware stores and the Alexandria Township Municipal Offices.

If the test indicates a radon problem, radon mitigation systems can be installed at a cost similar to that of other home repairs. A list of certified mitigation companies is also available from the Radon Program.

For more information on Radon, contact Alexandria Township at (908) 996-7071 or the DEP Radon Program at (800) 648-0394 or visit http://www.njradon.org.

Proposed PennEast Pipeline

Posted by Alexandria Township on August 14, 2014

In response to inquiries regarding the 100 mile pipeline proposed that will cross the Delaware River.

PennEast Pipeline Company, LLC, Announces Project To Supply Lower Cost Marcellus Natural Gas To Mid-Atlantic Region.

The proposed PennEast Pipeline will bring low-cost Marcellus gas to natural gas customers in southeast Pennsylvania and New Jersey. At a cost of approximately $1 billion, this new 100-mile pipeline is designed with a 30-inch diameter to deliver up to 1 billion cubic feet of gas per day.
The pipeline will originate in Luzerne County in northeast Pennsylvania and terminate at Transco’s Trenton-Woodbury interconnection near Trenton, New Jersey.
PennEast will begin preliminary engineering studies in the coming months, along with a formal application before the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). If all local, state and federal approvals are timely approved, construction of the pipeline could begin in 2017.
For more information, please go to http://www.penneastpipeline.com. Residents with questions about the PennEast Pipeline project can email them to answers@penneastpipeline.com.
Additional information can be found at the FERC website (www.ferc.gov). FERC evaluates interstate natural gas pipeline applications for approval. Also, the U.S. Department of Transportation Office of Pipeline Safety (www.phmsa.dot.gov/pipeline), which enforces regulations of the nation’s pipeline transportation system, is another valuable source of information.
