Information for You

One in eight Vermont homes has unsafe levels of radon. Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that has no color, smell or taste.

Radioactive materials give off a form of energy that travels in waves or particles. This energy is called radiation.

Lead poisoning can be prevented when you know what danger signs and hazards to look for in your home or in other places.

Lead is a highly toxic metal. It was commonly used in paint in buildings built before 1978 as well as in other household, industrial, and automobile products.

Volatile organic compounds, or VOCs, is the name given to substances that contain carbon and evaporate or “off-gases” at room temperature.

The Vermont Department of Health Laboratory offers two tests for radioactivity in drinking water: gross alpha activity and radon in water
