Battle Ground Public Schools conducts voluntary air quality testing

August 21, 2017


As part of its ongoing safety measures, Battle Ground Public Schools has voluntarily tested its facilities for radon. Tests conducted in the district's school buildings found no elevated levels of radon in areas used by students and staff.

Just one location, a storage room at Laurin Middle School, tested above the action level for radon. Battle Ground Public Schools is working with a radon testing and mitigation specialist to determine how to mitigate this storage room.

Battle Ground Public Schools planned last year to test for radon after completing water testing in all of its buildings. The last time the district tested buildings for radon was in 2010-2011. Those results were within the EPA's acceptable limits, and there wasn't any mitigation.
