Arsenic detected in over 40% of Jackson County Wells

Many Southern Oregon families depend on groundwater wells for their drinking water supply. Some of these families may have no idea that they are regularly consuming arsenic.

As part of a USGS investigation, a review of past groundwater quality studies in the Rogue Basin summarized that arsenic was detected in 19 out of the 52 wells tested (17%), and in 44% of the Jackson County wells tested.

While a safe concentration for consumption has not been determined, the EPA has set the maximum acceptable levels for arsenic for Arsenic at 10 parts per billion (ppb).

Three Rogue Valley wells had arsenic levels above this maximum level, in Gold Hill (11.7ppb ), Grants Pass (18.1ppb), and Jacksonville (32.1ppb). Neilson Research Corporation, a local drinking water laboratory, reports that many more locations have arsenic levels above 10ppb.

A Cause for Concern

Arsenic is a naturally occurring semi-metal element. Both odorless and tasteless, arsenic can enter drinking water supplies from natural deposits in the earth and runoff from agricultural and industrial practices.

The EPA has warned that drinking water containing low levels of arsenic over many years can lead to a multitude of health problems such as skin damage, circulatory system problems, and increased cancer risk. Exposure to high levels can be fatal.

Pure Water Solutions Guarantee


The results are always guaranteed with our Pure Water Solution systems. You can rest assured that if we do not achieve our represented results, 100% of your money will be promptly refunded.

Why do business with another company who will not offer you the same guarantee?

Pure Water Solutions is a local family owned business — not a franchise. We are properly licensed, insured, bonded, and we always use properly licensed contractors for all our system installations.

Some companies claim that only their absorptive media is effective and tested and that other companies offer inferior and out-dated arsenic removal media. These false claims are often a ploy to confuse customers and charge higher pricing for their treatment tanks. The EPA does not endorse one media over another. All arsenic removal media are required to pass the same stringent certification procedure. Buyer beware.

As an independent water filtration company, Pure Water Solutions performs extensive research and testing to find the arsenic removal systems that are most powerful and effective for water conditions in our Southern Oregon area. We are proud to offer the most powerful and affordable arsenic removal solutions in the marketplace today to our Southern Oregon customers.
