Radon is prevalent in many areas, including Harleysville.
Radon is a radioactive gas that results from the natural breakdown of uranium found in trace amounts in soil, rock, and water. Radon is the main source of our exposure to all radiation. The US Surgeon General and the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have determined that radon is second only to smoking as a leading cause of lung cancer. Testing for Radon is the only way to know if you and your family are at risk from radon.
Three companies comprise what is locally known as the “Harleysville three”; the largest businesses in town.

* Harleysville Savings Financial Corp
The fact that Harleysville is home to two banks and a major insurance firm has attracted investors to the town.
