Radon Control Program


To protect Rhode Islanders from lung cancer due to radon exposure by ensuring that no homes, schools, or other high priority buildings have unacceptable radon levels.

What we do

  • Implement and enforce the mandatory radon testing and mitigation requirements for high priority buildings (schools, childcare facilities, and public buildings).
  • Certify and control quality of the licensed radon professional infrastructure.
  • Promote radon testing and mitigation in residential properties through education and outreach campaigns.
  • Promote radon resistant new construction in homes, schools, and public buildings.
  • Manage and maintain a comprehensive radon database of high priority building and residential test results.
  • Collaborate with, and support, the US Environmental Protection Agency's Protecting People and Families from Radon Initiative.
