Why should we have our well tested for arsenic?

  • Arsenic has no smell, taste or color when dissolved in water, even in high concentrations.
  • Testing a water sample is the only way to know how much arsenic is present in a well.
  • EPA regulations and testing are limited to public water sources, not private wells. If your family gets their drinking/cooking water from a private well, you should have your water tested for arsenic.
