Radon Monitoring Kits Offered

radon

Teton County Environmental Health is offering short and long term Radon detection kits for purchase at the department’s office in the Public Health building at 460 E. Pearl. The cost is $10 and $25 dollars respectively. County Environmental Health Specialist Mike Dart explains that radon is a naturally occurring odorless, colorless and tasteless radioactive gas that comes from the natural decay of uranium, which is found in the soil throughout Wyoming. Exposure to radon increases the risk of developing lung cancer. Dart says more than 21,000 lung cancer deaths each year are attributable to radon. Radon enters homes and buildings from the soil beneath through cracks and other openings in the foundation. The kits will help homeowners determine if their homes have elevated radon levels. Then, if elevated Radon levels are detected, residents are urged to contact a professional radon inspector.

  • My hunting dog has been pouting - September 15, 2014
    I finally got my dog out for a day of hunting last week. It was almost too late. She’s been pouting for months, and I realized a while ago it was because I hadn’t gotten her on a bird since last November. I figured it out when I took her out to get her tuned […]
