Abstract

This entry presents a case study of the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) and its reaction to reports of high levels of indoor radon in neighboring Pennsylvania. New Jersey's response to this problem is characterized by an integrated multiagency approach and the growth of firms providing reliable, regulated radon testing and remediation services in the private sector.
