January is Radon Action Month. Radon is a naturally occurring, radioactive gas that cannot be seen, smelled or tasted. This unwelcome gas can seep into homes and accumulate in enclosed places. Anita Kopera, supervisor of DEP’s Radon Section, joined Bob Bostock to discuss radon in New Jersey and DEP’s role in radon prevention, regulations, outreach and education.
