Radon in Your Water (C 858-16) University of Georgia Extension Radon is a naturally occurring, radioactive gas formed from the decay of uranium and radium found in geologic deposits. Exposure to radon gas most commonly occurs through elevated levels in home air. However, in Georgia and neighboring states there is a lesser, though still significant, risk of exposure to radon dissolved in drinking water. This circular addresses the issues on its occurrence, human exposure pathways, testing, interpretations, and remediation strategies. 2016-06-13 16:28:25.657 2016-01-19 16:26:47.707 Household Water Quality Series: Radon in Your Water | Publications | UGA Extension Skip to content
