Scheduling an arsenic test for the water in your home is recommended by the Environmental Protection Agency, at least once a year, as arsenic is a naturally occurring element in rocks and soil that can occasionally contaminate well water. Among other illnesses arsenic ingestion can cause, National Cancer Institute studies have shown a link between arsenic and bladder cancer, and recent studies of New Hampshire water reveal a higher risk of bladder cancer among residents who drink the most from private wells.
Arsenic is both odorless and tasteless. A water test reveals the element’s presence, as well as the presence of nitrates, bacteria, and other chemicals. In the event of contamination, Capital Well Clean Water Center can help determine the best way to treat your water, whether installing a point-of-use unit, such as a filter on the tap, or reverse osmosis or distillation devices.
As bedrock in New Hampshire, Maine, and Vermont commonly contain arsenic, regular testing of the water in your bedrock well is crucial to maintaining a clean supply.
