Removing Arsenic From Well Water – Part II

Arsenic is an element that can be found in soil, rocks, and water. It occurs naturally in many parts of the United States, including Southern Oregon. While small amounts of arsenic may be present in well water without causing harm, excessive levels of arsenic can have serious health and home benefits.

In this article, we will explore the risks of exposure to high levels of arsenic and the benefits of removing it from well water.

Arsenic and Cancer

Exposure to high levels of arsenic can cause a range of health problems including skin damage, cancer, and other serious illnesses. Children and pregnant women are particularly vulnerable to the effects of arsenic, as exposure during these critical periods of development can result in growth and cognitive impairments.

Long-term exposure to high levels of inorganic arsenic in drinking water has been linked to an increased risk of several types of cancer, including skin, lung, bladder, liver and kidney cancers. It can also cause other health problems, such as skin lesions, developmental delays, and cardiovascular disease.

Damage to Plumbing

In addition to these health risks, arsenic in well water can also cause discoloration and damage to plumbing fixtures and appliances, leading to costly repairs.
