Radon Program

Clinton County Radon Outreach

The Clinton County Health Department has received a grant from the Iowa Cancer Consortium for Clinton County Radon Outreach. The grant is available now and will continue until all funds are used or June 1, 2017, whichever occurs first.
Clinton County Radon Outreach seeks to partner free private well water testing with free short-term radon testing. Up to 300 households will be able to receive one free short-term kit, with set-up included at no charge.
For more information or to request your free short-term radon test kit, please call the Clinton County Health Department at (563) 659-8148.
If a homeowner does not wish to participate in the grant program, or wishes to buy additional short-term radon test kits, kits will still be available for purchase at the Clinton County Health Department.

The Clinton County Health Department:

  1. is a local source for information/consultation and referral in cases of radon related concerns

Testing for Radon:

Radon is a natural radioactive gas that can cause cancer. You can’t see, smell or taste it, but radon may be in your home. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), radon is the first leading cause of lung cancer in nonsmokers and the second leading cause of lung cancer in smokers. Testing for radon in your home is inexpensive, easy and can save lives. Do-it-yourself test kits can be purchased through the Clinton County Health Department at 226 11th Street, DeWitt, Iowa. If you have questions about how to use your test kit, contact us at (563) 659-8148.
