Radon tests are in after I-Team exposes district didn’t test for radioactive gas for decades

Radon in Schools
The results are in. Hillsborough County schools have been testing for radon in your children's classroom after our I-Team revealed that the district had not tested for the radioactive gas in 20 years.

The EPA recommends testing every five years.

Investigator Adam Walser has the results and talked to the man in charge of overseeing the testing about what's being done to fix the problem.

The I-Team first uncovered in August that Hillsborough County Schools hadn't tested for radon for decades in some of its schools.

​ “I didn't have any idea that this was an issue,” said Hillsborough County Schools’ Safety Director Corries Culpepper, when we pointed out the old data back in August.
