Arsenic Contamination

Measurement and Management of Arsenic in Drinking Water

Contamination of drinking water with arsenic is a significant global health problem, affecting an estimated 150 million people worldwide, with as many as 70 million of those people living in rural Bangladesh.  

Arsenic Contamination: a crisis in Bangladesh

 Arsenic was first detected in Bangladesh about 20 years ago following a program to dig millions of tube wells as a solution to people drinking bacteria-contaminated surface water.
