The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment recently offered free Radon test kits to residents, but the State has since ran out.
“CDPHE recently offered free Radon test kits to residents but due to the overwhelming demand, the supply ran out quickly,” the health department stated on its web site. “A few counties and municipalities, Colorado State University Extension Offices, and testing contractors are offering a limited number of additional free Radon test kits to Colorado residents. There are only about 3,000 kits available, and many are available only to residents in certain counties.”
If you live in one of the following cities or counties, you may be eligible to pick up a free testing kit:
-Archuleta, La Plata and San Juan Counties
-Rio Blanco County
