This email is being sent out as a reminder to contractors that may be installing radon mitigation systems in Minneapolis that radon systems for existing construction in cases where there is no current radon system installed are now permitted and inspected by the Minnesota Department of Health (see links below). The City of Minneapolis will no longer be issuing permits or doing inspections for radon system work in these buildings.
Your company is receiving this email as either you have requested and received a radon mitigation permit from the City of Minneapolis permitting system since January 1, 2019 or you may have received a permit from us prior to 2019.
Effective Monday, August 10, 2020, the City of Minneapolis will no longer accept, process, issue or inspect new permit submittals for radon mitigation systems in the City of Minneapolis.
Due to the resolution of recent legal challenges to State of Minnesota Department of Health requirements, radon mitigation permits must now be requested from the State of Minnesota Health Department.
Any open permits issued from the City of Minneapolis prior to August 10, 2020 will need to obtain final inspections from city inspection staff.
For all new residential construction and for additions to residential construction where a radon mitigation system is currently installed, these radon systems will continue to be reviewed and inspected as part of the overall building permit issued for the project – no additional mechanical permit is required.
For more information on radon system installations and requirements, please visit the Minnesota Department of Health website at:
