Situated along the junction between the Arkansas River and Fountain Creek is the historically rich City of Pueblo. Known as both “The City of Heroes” and “Steel City,” Pueblo has a deep history rooted in its steel production and to this day is one of the largest steel producing cities in the United States. The city also features upscale restaurants, cafes, and numerous other attractions including the Pueblo Riverwalk, a 32-acre urban waterfront. Combined with the most affordable housing in the state, it’s easy to see why so many are choosing to call Pueblo home.
Based on historical statistics gathered by the CDPHE for 2016 Pueblo Radon Project, the level of recorded radon in Pueblo City and Pueblo County is approximately 8 pCi/L. This is twice the EPA’s recommended level, indicating a high risk of indoor radon exposure for many of the homes and communities across Pueblo and has only increased since. If you are planning on purchasing a home in Pueblo, it is highly advised you have it tested and treated for radon.
