Where radon occurs
Radon is a naturally-occurring radioactive gas produced by uranium decaying underground. It seeps into buildings through floors, walls in contact with soil, and through water or gas supplies. When inhaled, radon atoms decaying in our lungs can cause damage to cells and cause lung cancer.
It’s associated with geological types like granite and shale, and the probability of finding high radon levels has been mapped for the UK in the ‘Indicative Radon Atlas.’ Although detailed, it only gives an indication – you have to test to be sure.

With the ACUMEN project now in its final month, the Environment Agency and CIWM will be hosting a webinar. The webinar will focus on some of the headline facts and figures from our practical field scale demonstrations of ways to manage the gas at closed landfill sites. Additionally, the webinar will be an opportunity for us to provide an overview of the tools and reports that the ACUMEN Project Team have produced to help people tasked with managing closed landfills. More information about the project is included in our latest Project Update which is available here
