The Kaw Nation Environmental Department has a program that is available to assist tribal members. The first service provided is to check for mold and radon in tribal members homes. When a tribal makes a request, we will schedule a time with them to sample their home.
KNED gives out radon testing kits to tribal members for free if they want to test their homes by themselves. It is recommended to test in the colder months and in areas of the house where there is less traffic. After testing, return the kit. We will send the kit to the Las Vegas EPA lab, where it will be processed. Afterwards, we will contact you with the results. This radon test is important for detecting the level of this colorless, cancerous gas, which can appear in buildings by penetrating building materials.
The KNED also performs energy auditing and other home inspections, does environmental assessments of properties after land purchases.
