Radon Gas Testing

Radon gas is found in soil, rocks, underground water supplies and in the air. Radon is often associated with increased risk of developing lung cancer. The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) recommends schools test radon levels in occupied areas that are in contact with the ground.

In March 2016, as a part of the School District's ongoing Health and Safety Program, completed radon testing at all six of their school district sites.

The results show radon concentration levels were well below the MDH recommended guidelines.
