The Windsor-Essex County (WEC) Health Unit began a radon awareness campaign in late 2015. As a part of the campaign, participants who were owners of private detached homes were recruited to determine radon levels in participant homes and in the areas of WEC. This report contains the results of the study.

Thank you for your interest in our Radon study.
Radon is produced when uranium found in soil, rock or water decays. Radon is found across Canada because it occurs naturally in soil. The gas naturally rises up from the soil and can get into any type of building where it builds up due to negative pressure and lack of air flow. Breathing in radon gas for extended periods of time can potentially be hazardous to you and your family.
