According to the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services, over ­­­­80% of homes tested in Nemaha County have levels of radon in the indoor air that exceed EPA’s action level.

Radon is a colorless, odorless gas that is a naturally occurring byproduct of the radioactive decay of Uranium in the soil. It enters homes through cracks and crevices in the foundation or through crawl spaces below the structure. Radon can get into any type of building – houses, offices, schools, etc. – but researchers suggest that people are most likely to receive their greatest exposure to radon at home, simply because that’s where they spend the greatest amount of their time.
