Got Radon?


Radon is a radioactive gas that enters the home through soil and
water. It is odorless, and tasteless and is the second
leading cause of lung cancer, after cigarette smoking.

Here are some ways that Radon gas can enter your home.


You should consider testing your home if:

  • You have a home office or childcare business in your basement.
  • You are planning to add to your home or remodel your basement.
  • You live in a Zone 1 area, (these areas have a high potential for radon;
    this includes all of Carver County).
  • You are concerned for your health and the health of your family.

Short Term Radon Kits can be purchased at the Carver County Environmental Center, located at
116 Peavey Rd, Chaska, MN, just off Highway 41.

If you have any other questions or would like more information, please call (952) 361-1800.
