A recent campaign looking into radon levels in the RM of Dauphin showed 71% of homes tested had levels above Health Canada’s guidelines.

Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas and is the leading cause of lung cancer in non-smokers, according to the national organization Take Action On Radon.

The results from last winter’s testing campaign show another 17% of homes tested in the RM of Dauphin had radon gas levels that were close to exceeding the recommended safe zone.

There are a number of ways to reduce radon gas levels, including increasing ventilation, sealing cracks, and installing a radon mitigation system.
