Time to return radon detectors

17 April 2012

Jersey’s 3 month long radon survey is about to end and Islanders who were issued with a pair of radon detectors in January are being reminded that it is now time to return them so they can be analysed.

The radon survey was undertaken in conjunction with the Health Protection Agency (HPA) and the States of Jersey. Households in Jersey were selected for the survey and, in addition, further households chose to have a survey at a reduced cost over the standard fee.


Head of the Environmental Health department, Mike Arnold, said "The detectors were sent out by the HPA early in January to be placed in homes for a 3 month period.  We would like to remind all participants that the detectors should be returned to the HPA after 14 April in the self addressed envelopes originally provided with the detectors.  The accompanying information sheets should also be completed and enclosed with the detectors.

"Results should be available within a couple of months, and will be sent to householders and shared with the States of Jersey.  If action is required to reduce exposure to radon, affected householders will be advised at that time."
