WHAT IS RADON?
Radon is a radioactive gas that occurs naturally when the uranium in soil and rock breaks down. It is invisible, odourless and tasteless. When radon is released from the ground into the outdoor air, it is diluted and is not a concern. However, in enclosed spaces, like homes, it can sometimes accumulate to high levels, which can be a risk to the health of you and your family. Below are some links to information regarding Radon.
The Housing Department will be providing a lunch time and evening information session in the near future for community members. All your questions and concerns can be addressed at these information sessions.
