Radon Kits Available

Radon Kits available

Quinnipiack Valley Health District (QVHD), the local health department for Bethany,
Hamden, North Haven and Woodbridge, announces that it has a limited
supply of free radon testing kits available for District residents. Radon is a
natural element that results from the decay of uranium. It can enter the home
through cracks, crevices and holes in the foundation or it can dissolve in
underground water sources such as wells. Any home can have radon, whether it is
old or new. Testing is the only way to identify it. Most homes can be fixed for
a reasonable cost. Long term exposure to radon can increase the risk of lung
cancer, particularly in smokers. District residents only can call QVHD, 203 248-4528, to reserve your kit or request on line, www.qvhd.org.  Kits must be picked up at the District office.
