Tennessee Radon Program
The Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) operates a statewide indoor Radon Program as part of the Office of Policy and Sustainable Practices. We offer a myriad of services and assistance, including test kits for homeowners, technical information for universities, and specific materials for targeted audiences, such as real estate professionals, home builders, building codes officials, home inspectors, and school officials.
Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas. It is released during the natural decay of uranium, which is found in most rock and soil. Radon is odorless, invisible, and without taste.
