Chesprocott offering radon testing kits


CHESHIRE — Chesprocott Health District is offering free radon test kits to residents in Cheshire, Prospect and Wolcott this month.

Radon is a naturally occurring gas that can impact indoor air quality and people’s health.

Starting on Jan. 19, Chesprocott will offer free radon testing kits on a first-come, first-served basis at its office, 1247 Highland Ave. Residents who pick up a testing kit are asked to leave $20, which will be given back when the completed test kit is returned to the office.

There is a limited amount of kits. Health officials will provide mitigation information to those who test with high levels of radon.
