Arsenic in Water


Source of Arsenic in Water: Arsenic (As) is often used in wood preservation as well as in paint and dye production. It can also be a byproduct of other industrial or agricultural processes. Arsenic can enter ground water through farm run-off or industrial waste. Mining or metallurgical operations can also create arsenic-lased pollution. 

Symptoms of Arsenic: Arsenic has no smell or taste. Its effects, however, can be deadly. Short term exposure can lead to skin irritation and discoloration; stomach problems, including nausea and vomiting, and other digestive issues. Long term exposure to arsenic in drinking water has been shown to lead various types of cancer including liver, prostate, and bladder cancer.

Filtration Solutions for Arsenic: Since arsenic can not be seen and has no taste, tap water should be tested to ascertain arsenic levels. The EPA requires municipalities to test for and treat water that is over 10ppb (10 parts per billion). Private wells are not regulated by governments, owners should test at least annually for the presence of arsenic. Toxic arsenic levels in drinking water can be reduced by five ways: reverse osmosis, activated alumina, ion exchange, activated carbon, and distillation. Arsenic water filtration through activated carbon water filters will reduce the amount of arsenic in drinking water from 40-70%. Anion exchange can reduce it by 90-100%. Reverse Osmosis has a 90% removal rate, and Water Distillation will remove 98% of arsenic from water.
