Maintenance Mondays

Radon is a naturally occurring colorless, odorless, tasteless radioactive gas. According to Health Canada Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer next to smoking.  Radon is in all buildings, current recommendations are to keep radon levels under 200 Bq/m3. The only way to know how much radon is in your home is to test. It is easy and affordable to test your home. New Brighton Club is helping by selling Health                   Canada approved testing kits. Testing should be conducted over 3 or more months during the heating period, making right now the perfect time to test.

Pond on the corner of McIvor Blvd.

The NBRA has received several phone calls regarding work that is being completed at the pond on the corner of McIvor Blvd and New Brighton Ave (across from Shell). After speaking with Kidco (the company carrying out the work) it has been determined that: the pond behind the car dealerships is being drained into the pond across from Shell, in order to measure silt levels in the pond and remove garbage. The pond will be filled back up again, once this work is completed. Any further questions on concerns can be directed to the City of Calgary, by calling 311.
