Arsenic in Oregon Well Water – Should you be concerned?

Oregon Department of Environmental Quality found that 6% of the wells tested in Jackson and Josephine counties show arsenic levels above the maximum safe level of 10 micrograms per liter in a 2017 study. Yet many Rogue Valley home owners have never tested their well.

Arsenic has no smell, taste, or color when dissolved in water, even in high concentrations. Only laboratory analysis can detect its presence and concentration.

If you are concerned your well water may contain arsenic, call Pure Water Solutions for a 100% FREE, no-obligation water analysis.


What is the danger of arsenic?

Arsenic in water can pose a risk for humans, pets, livestock and when used for irrigation.

Signs and symptoms of arsenic exposure include skin discoloration, nausea and vomiting, headaches, tingling of fingers and toes, mental confusion, stomach pain, and diarrhea. Arsenic poisoning affects the skin, circulatory system, nervous system, lungs, liver, bladder, and kidneys.

Chronic exposure to arsenic has been associated with an increased risk for cancer and other diseases. Children and pregnant women are especially at risk.

How can I protect my family from arsenic?

The most effective preventive measure against arsenic poisoning is to make sure you drink clean, filtered water.

If your well has never been tested for arsenic, get it tested.

What do I do if my water contains arsenic?

If your water has arsenic levels above 10 ppb, get drinking water from another source or install a home treatment device.

Following installation of a treatment device, water should be retested to verify proper operation of the device.
