... that requires disposal only at federally designated radioactive waste disposal sites.” According to the U.S. EPA, “Radium and radon are potent human carcinogens. Uranium may cause lung cancer and tumors of the lymphatic and hematopoietic tissues.” Uranium is higher in Utica than in Marcellus shale.
Cabot remains banned from drilling in a 9-square-mile area of Dimock, which is in the heart of the gas-rich Marcellus Shale rock formation in ... Government scientists collected samples from 24 homes, including Kemble's, testing the water for bacteria, gases and chemicals and the indoor air for radon.

We don't need a Chernobyl to happen in Binghamton or Albany. We've got Marcellus shale gas to deliver radioactive exposure. Currently, per the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) website, it is our Department of Health (DOH) which regulates radon, a radionuclide. According to the ...
MARCELLUS — Edie Brown and Kristen Reagan are accomplished, working artists.

“Radon is an inert radioactive gas. This means it does not react chemically with other elements,” explained Marvin Reisnikoff, Senior Associate at Radioactive Waste Management Associates, in a 2012 paper on radon in the Marcellus. “Whatever radon is in the pipeline and is delivered to homes is released ...
But in the Marcellus and other formations, a major waste component is salty, mineral rich water found naturally underground.

But it highlighted natural gas drilling in the Marcellus Shale as a possible cause of the higher radon levels. “One plausible explanation for elevated radon levels in people's homes is the development of thousands of unconventional natural gas wells in Pennsylvania over the past 10 years,” said study leader ...
Plans are underway to construct a pipeline that would carry Marcellus gas to the nation's biggest city, New York City. But if that happens, some experts warn of a potential public health crisis. The problem centers around the way that radon breaks down. Radon has a half life of only 3.8 days, meaning that if ...
In addition to the usual concerns about fracking – such as methane leakage, improper disposal of the wastewater post-drilling, and the annoyances of heavy industry – Marcellus residents are also worried that fracking here could lead to increased exposure to radon. Radon is a radioactive and carcinogenic ...
