How does Tri-County Health Department test for radon and is there a fee?
Tri-County Health Department places a radon meter in your home and measures the radon levels for comparison to the EPA standard of 4.0 pCi/l (picocuries per liter). The house needs to be closed up (no doors or windows left ajar) for at least 12 hours prior to sampling. We provide you with a written report that summarizes the results. This is a free service for residents but we charge a fee for businesses and non-county government agencies.
