What is Radon?
Radon is a colorless, odorless, and tasteless cancer-causing radioactive gas that comes from the natural decay of uranium found in different types of soils, rock, and some groundwater. Because it is a radioactive atom, it can migrate through the concrete floor and basement and enter homes, schools, and workplaces-even without cracks in the floor.
The National Academy of Science, the U.S. Surgeon General’s Office, and the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) indicate that Radon is second only to smoking as a cause of lung cancer. It causes approximately 21,000 lung cancer deaths per year in the United States.
Marathon County and the surrounding areas are rated as Zone 1, which is the highest rating.*
