The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) recommends that homeowners have their well water tested for arsenic. Arsenic is a chemical element that naturally occurs in the earth’s mineral deposits and dissolves in groundwater. Michigan has naturally higher arsenic levels in groundwater.
Arsenic in drinking water may have harmful health effects depending on how much you consume and how sensitive you are to it.
ARSENIC IN MICHIGAN WATER
Arsenic is a common natural occurrence in Michigan ground water. One of the more dangerous water contaminants, arsenic can be toxic even in small levels over the long term.
According to the EPA, prolonged arsenic exposure has been known to cause or increase certain types of cancer, nervous system damage, skin conditions, and other health concerns.
TREATING THE ARSENIC IN YOUR WATER
The EPA has set the maximum contaminant level at 10 parts per billion (ppb), and it is recommended that you do not use your water for drinking or cooking if it exceeds this level.
Since arsenic cannot be seen or tasted in water, a laboratory analysis specifically designed for detecting arsenic is the only way to determine the arsenic level in drinking water wells.
We offer several affordable treatment options for dealing with arsenic in your well water, including whole house arsenic filtration systems and reverse osmosis units.
