Radon Testing

Radon Testing

Radon is a naturally occurring, radioactive gas that enters buildings from the surrounding soil. It is a colorless, odorless, tasteless, radioactive gas, the primary source of ionizing radiation to humans.

The level of radon gas present in an area may pose a health hazard to students and staff alike. Testing is the only way to determine how much radon is present in the school, though it is estimated that radon levels in schools are relatively low.

Test results are measured in picoCuries/liter (pCi/L) which are used to establish the action levels recommended by the EPA.

The most recent radon testing was done January of 2019. McGregor schools have been doing periodic testing for Radon since 2000.
