Radon Program

The East Shore District Health Department has radon test kits available on a first come, first serve basis.

Radon is a colorless, odorless, radioactive gas that is present in the natural environment. In outdoor settings, radon is effectively diluted, but when inside buildings, if not exhausted out, radon can accumulate in concentrations considered unhealthy.
