Warren to Offer Radon Test Kits to Residents

WARREN, NJ — Warren Township will be offering radon test kits to residents during the winter months as part of National Radon Action Month in January.

"Radon is an odorless, tasteless, and invisible gas that occurs naturally when uranium and radium break down in the soil and in rock formations. Radon gas moves up through the soil and finds its way into homes through cracks in the foundation and openings around pumps, pipes, and drains. Radon occurs in higher concentrations in certain areas of the state, including Warren Township," the township announced.

Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer in nonsmokers and the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States.
