What is radon? When should I take action? Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that you can’t see, taste, or smell. It is produced by the breakdown of uranium in soil, rock, and water. Radon is measured in picocuriesper liter (pCi/L) of air. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends that action be taken to reduce radon levels if the annual average is 4 pCi/L or higher.
