What Is Arsenic Contamination?

Arsenic—the stuff of murder-mysteries. But arsenic is all around us. Odorless and tasteless, it exists naturally in our soil and bedrock and is further introduced via agricultural and industrial practices. In New England it has been found to contaminate groundwater, particularly in bedrock aquifers across the region. Water that comes from wells fed by these natural reserves can be contaminated by arsenic and, if not treated, can lead to long-term or short-term health issues.

The EPA standard, enforced to protect consumers of public water, sets safe arsenic in water content at 10 parts per billion. So what do you do if you have "arsenic in my water" and what should you look for in an arsenic removal system?

Arsenic Contamination
Treatment Services

A & B Water Consultants has treated residential water systems for arsenic contamination for more than two decades. We provide high-quality arsenic water treatment system installations and on-going service.

All our arsenic-removal systems are unique. Through testing, we determine the level of arsenic and other factors that make up your water’s chemistry. Based on that information we design a system of filters and techniques to reduce the arsenic content to EPA-approved standards. We install whole house arsenic treatment systems and —point of entry—or for separate sinks—point of use arsenic filtration systems.

Well water treated by A & B Water Consultants meets this standard.
