The EPA are working with Wexford Libraries in piloting a loan scheme for digital radon monitors through local libraries.
This scheme is aimed at householders that have previously carried out a three-month radon test and found radon levels above the national reference level (200 Bq/m3).
If you are living in a Wexford household and are a library member, you can borrow a digital radon monitor from Bunclody or New Ross library, in the same way as you would borrow a book.
You can use the digital radon monitor to quickly and easily confirm whether the concentrations of radon in your home are still above the reference level. Contact us for information about how to reduce your radon levels.
Clean Air Together is inviting members of the public and the business community to measure Dublin’s air quality. Clean Air Together is a citizen science project where 1,000 participants will record levels of Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2) pollution in their local area. It is a joint project between the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Environmental Education Unit of An Taisce.
How does it work:
If you are in Dublin, you can apply for free to be one of 1,000 selected participants by the 22nd of September. If you are selected:

The Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment (GLOBE) Programme is an international science and education programme that provides school students with the opportunity to participate in citizen science.
GLOBE is managed by An Taisce in partnership with the EPA. Participating schools learn about air quality and the weather by making scientific measurements and using their data to carry out research.
The International GLOBE Learning Expedition was held in Killarney, Co. Kerry in 2018. Watch this short video to find out more.
