Many northern New Jersey residents get their drinking water from private wells, and NJ Private Well Testing Act results from 2002-2012 show that >10% of wells tested exceed state limits for arsenic in drinking water, and in some townships >40% of private wells tested exceeded state limits. The New Jersey Arsenic Awareness Initiative was developed to inform owners about the need to test their wells and the importance of treating drinking water for arsenic when results show levels exceeding the standards.
