Use this map to find out the potential of radon exposure in Carson City County homes.

Radon is a colorless, odorless, and tasteless radioactive gas that occurs naturally in most rocks and soils. It is produced by the decay of uranium in soil, rock and water. Radon is harmlessly dispersed in outdoor air, but when trapped in buildings it can build up, increasing the risk of lung cancer. The EPA Action Level: The U.S. EPA recommends that you take action to reduce radon levels that are 4.0 pCi/l or higher. The EPA and the U.S. Surgeon General recommends all homes be tested for radon.
