Arsenic in Private Wells in NH Report Completed by Dartmouth SRP and Thayer School of Engineering
A new report prepared by the Dartmouth SRP and Thayer School of Engineering for the NH DES and DHHS, examines barriers to testing and treating arsenic in private well water. Funded through a grant from CDC, the report also examines health impacts of arsenic in drinking water and concludes that hundreds of cases of cancer of the lung, bladder, or skin could be avoided in New Hampshire by convincing private well users to test and treat their water to remove naturally occurring arsenic.
