With great sadness, we want to share news with our CARST family on the passing of Arthur Scott.  We are saddened to learn that he passed away on Sunday, September 11, 2016 from a short, quick illness.  There will be a quiet family memorial service for him.

In honour of the passing of Arthur Scott, CARST would like to recognize his contributions to the radon industry.  Arthur made significant contributions through his early design of the radon mitigation – active soil depressurization concept and continued through his life to share his expertise in radon mitigation and measurement.  We will miss your contributions and your wit, Arthur.

We encourage you to post your thoughts, memories and best wishes here and we will share these with Arthur's family.  If you have more personal wishes you would like to pass on to the family, you can email and we will compile these and pass them on as well.

    Although I never had a chance to to see and discuss with Mr Authur Scott. It was his sharing of mitigation experience in studying material and his comments in radon discussion over internet that impressed me so much. I can see he is definitely a dedicated man. He used his knowledge and experience to educate a generation of Canadian in this field , so that we all benefit from his contribution. His passing away is a great loss to Canada. Mr Authur Scott has left, but the spiritual legacy he left for later generations is everlasting.
    This short email expresses the mourning from my heart, my gratefulness to this mentor who I did not have a chance to meet .Please pass my condolence to Mr Authur Scott’s family member.
