Lincoln County has joined the Environmental Protection Agency in declaring January 2015 as National Radon Action Month.
Radon is an odorless, tasteless and invisible gas produced by the decay of naturally occurring uranium in soil and water. Radon is a form of ionizing radiation and a proven carcinogen. Lincoln County is listed on the EPA web site as Zone 1, which is an area of highest potential for radon exposure in buildings. In Zone 1 counties have a predicted average indoor radon screening level greater than 4 picocuries per liter. A curie is a measurement of radioactive decay. A picocurie is a very small amount of such decay. For example, if the entire planet Earth was considered to be one curie, a picocurie would be the size of a grain of sand.
