  • Free Radon Test Kits Available For Eligible Residents

The Macomb County Health Department is stressing radon testing in the home by giving away free testing kits to the public. The kits are available on a first-come, first-served basis, McNeill said.

Forty-nine percent of homes in La Plata County have required mitigation of the colorless, odorless gas produced by decaying uranium in rocks and soil. To reserve a kit, contact the Health Department at 203-452-1030.

"People wonder how this would get into my home -if you have a cracked foundation and it doesn't really matter if it's an old home or a new home". Radon-resistant construction should be incorporated for new homes as well as major remodels when air flow is altered. "We encourage everyone to test their homes because levels can vary drastically from home to home".

Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that is the primary cause of lung cancer for nonsmokers and the secondary cause for smokers. Radon can build high levels inside your home, and long term exposure to these high levels of radon is a risk for lung cancer. "In addition to testing their homes, smokers should also take steps to quit smoking". The aggregated information from the test results will be used to update statewide Radon Potential Maps, which show the likelihood of radon in a specific region. Short-term radon detection kits are available for $10 at the Teton County Public Health Department, located at 460 E. Pearl Avenue, from 8am to 5pm, Monday through Friday.

The recommended level set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is between 2 pCi/L and 4 pCi/L. Logan County has an average radon level of 4.4 pCi/L.

To get a free test kit, homeowners can log onto www.uchd.net/radon. Such systems should be installed by a certified mitigation contractor. And since radon levels can change from year to year, you should test every couple of years to make sure your system is working properly. The envelope is sent to the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality laboratory, where turnaround for the results is approximately two weeks.

The Extension Office has partnered with San Juan Basin Public Health to present several community meetings to discuss radon.
