Radon is a colorless, odorless radioactive gas that forms as a result of the natural decay of uranium underground. Radon Information Sheet (PDF) 

According to the EPA, radon is the number one cause of lung cancer among non-smokers.

The only way to know if your home has high radon is to test. Free test kits will be available to Pitkin County residents this winter 2021/2022. Winter is the best time to test for radon. 

Please email Jannette Whitcomb if you'd like to receive notification when free radon test kits are available.
