School's Old Radon Problems Raise New Concerns

Date Published: 05/14/2007 [Source]

The problems with radon leakage at a Worcester school have been corrected, but questions about the long-term affects from the exposure remain.

Radon monitoring is done in the basement of the City View School where unusually high levels of the gas was discovered in the mid-1990s -- exposing students and staff. Radon is a colorless odorless gas that can cause serious health problems.
