Out of Water? We're on it!

Arsenic

What is Arsenic?

Arsenic is odorless, colorless and tasteless, so you cannot see it, smell it or detect it by drinking water. Arsenic can enter drinking water through the ground or as a run off into surface water sources. Heating or boiling will NOT remove it, arsenic concentrations can actually increase slightly as the water is boiled.

Health Risks

Long term exposure in well water has been linked to skin damage, problems with the circulatory system, and an increase risk of getting different types of cancer. Arsenic and other heavy metals have been linked to numerous health issues, but fortunately there are solutions available to reduce heavy metals from your drinking water. If you suspect there may be Arsenic in well water supply, we recommend getting your water tested.
