  • Monitoring ORP In Private Wells To Determine Arsenic
    Monitoring ORP In Private Wells To Determine Arsenic

    Arsenic is one of the most common elements in the earth’s crust and is commonly found in many locations at varying concentrations. The Midwestern United States has locations that are heavily laden with arsenic because of certain geological settings and conditions. This naturally-occurring arsenic can leach into groundwater potentially causing elevated levels of arsenic in drinking water supplies. The primary pathway that exposes arsenic to humans is through drinking water (Thomas et. al., 2008).
