As part of January National Radon Awareness Month, the Chatham Health District has acquired 100 radon test kits from the Connecticut State Health Department. One test kit is available per residence. The test consists of placing a small charcoal canister in the lowest occupied level of the home for 48 hours. Twelve hours before the test and during the entire test period all doors and windows must be kept closed except for normal egress in and out of the home. Heating and central air systems may be used, but room air conditioners, attic fans, fireplaces or wood stoves may not be used or readings will not be accurate. Once the test is complete, you will need to mail the kit in for testing at no charge to you. The results will be sent to you and will be mapped by this department to determine high levels of radon within our district. The results will not be public information.
These test kits are in high demand and are very limited. Please ONLY take a test kit if you are committed to following the directions and mailing it out. If you are interested in obtaining a free radon kit, please call the Chatham Health District at 860-365-0884.

Basketball Hoops and Trash Cans
The Public Works Department would like to remind residents of the possible hazard a portable basketball pole can present when placed on the side of the roadway. The hoop that extends into the travel lane can cause damage to passing vehicles and equipment. Please be sure that the structure is placed well
off the roadway as to not interfere with passing traffic.
During the snow season the basketball poles must be removed entirely as they interfere with snow operations. Another obstacle that the plows face is the placement of garbage containers along the roadway. The Town crew is responsible for clearing the snow back to the curb and the garbage containers should be placed accordingly.
A further reminder for residents, do not let children play in the snow embankments on the side of the road. Although they are an attractive recreation area, the snow plow drivers cannot see the presence
of a small child playing, especially if it is snowing.
Thank you for your cooperation in keeping our roadways safe.
If you notice objects stolen from your tool shed, garage, car or home please DO NOT post on Facebook or come into Town Hall to report it, call TROOP K immediately!! Crime statistics / trends are useful in allocating resources to best solve crimes.
