Radon is a naturally occurring, almost chemically inert, radioactive gas. It is formed from the radioactive breakdown (decay) of Radium, which is formed through several intermediate steps from the decay of Uranium.

Radon confirmatory testing is no longer being performed by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection or Middlesex County Public Health Department. The Radon Program is basically an educational program to help make residents of Middlesex County aware of potential radon contamination concerns in their homes. Information is disseminated by the distribution of NJDEP radon literature and telephone communication to any concerned residents. This program has been ongoing to provide assistance to Middlesex County residents for the past thirteen years.
