Abstract: 

Despite its reputation as a deadly poison, arsenic is like any toxic substance: its effect on people depends on factors such as how much we're exposed to and for how long, as well as how toxic it is. This booklet explains how arsenic gets into groundwater, health concerns and what well owners should know about treatment options.
