Fillmore County Fair nitrate and radon testing event


Fri, Jul 18th, 2014
Posted in All Fillmore County Fair

Fillmore County Public Health (FCPH) and the Fillmore County Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) are partnering to host radon and nitrate testing at the Fillmore County Fair. The event will be held Friday, July 25 from 3 to 6 p.m. at the west end of the Commercial Building located on the fairgrounds in Preston. Radon kits will be given out for patrons to take home and use. To have your water tested for nitrates, bring one-half cup of well water in a clean glass jar or plastic container.

Radon is an odorless, colorless gas that is found in over half of Fillmore County homes. Radon is the number one cause of lung-cancer for non-smokers and the second leading cause of lung cancer in smokers. Testing your home for radon is easy, inexpensive, and only takes a couple of days.

Another environmental issue that can affect Fillmore County residents is the nitrate level found in their private drinking water wells. High nitrate levels are linked to causing Blue Baby Syndrome in infants. For the general population, high nitrate levels may indicate other problems with their water such as having an increased risk of drinking harmful bacteria.

For radon testing and mitigation information call FCPH at 507-765-3898. Call SWCD at 507-765-3878 Extension 3 for info about nitrate and bacteria testing in water.
