Radon Testing and Radon Mitigation in Southampton
Public education in Southampton began in the mid 19th Century and one-room schoolhouses once stood at Street Road and Gravel Hill, and on County Line Road just west of Buck Road. Southamptonville’s former one-room schoolhouse has been enlarged to such an extent that it is no longer recognizable as such but stands in its original location on the south side of Street Road near the railroad overpass. The Original “Southampton High School” was later converted and expended into Shelmire Elementary School ( Now First Children Academy) when the new Centennial School District’s William Tennent High School was built in 1953.
Radon is a radioactive gas that results from the natural breakdown of uranium found in trace amounts in soil, rock, and water. Radon is the main source of our exposure to all radiation. The US Surgeon General and the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have determined that radon is second only to smoking as a leading cause of lung cancer. Testing for Radon is the only way to know if you and your family are at risk from radon.
