Fillmore County Public Health is providing a free radon and nitrate testing event at the Simple Living Farmer’s Market located at Hwy 44 on Saturday, October 12, 2019, from 8:30-11:30 a.m.
Radon gas can cause lung cancer and is in many homes. The only way to know if you have radon is to test your home with easy-to-use test kits.
Fillmore County residents may also have nitrates in their private well. High nitrate levels can cause Blue Baby Syndrome in infants. Having high nitrates may also mean other harmful substances are in your well. To have your water tested for nitrates, bring one cup of well water in a clean glass or plastic container. Test results will be available in minutes.
For radon testing and mitigation information, call FCPH at (507) 765-3898.
