The Clark County Health Department (CCHD), along with the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), recommends that all residents test their homes at least once for the presence of radon gas.
What is Radon?
Radon is a naturally occurring gas that is radioactive. You can’t see or smell it, yet it is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States. Radon seeps into homes and buildings from the surrounding soil. Fortunately, the risk from radon can be reduced. If a high level of radon gas is detected (the unsafe level of radon exposure set by the EPA is 4 pCi/L-picocuries per liter of air), simple steps can be taken to decrease the problem. A certified contractor can install a radon mitigation system to greatly reduce the radon concentration in your home.

The only way to know if you have a safe level of radon inside your home is to conduct a radon test. Testing is simple, quick, and inexpensive. Short-term radon test kits provided by the Clark County Health Department are available for $5.00 in the year 2024 (originally $10.00). Kits can be picked up at the Health Department. Kits can also be mailed for an additional $1.00. Radon test kits can also be found at many local hardware stores. To purchase a kit from CCHD or for more information, please call 715-743-5112.
