In Small Doses: Arsenic
In Small Doses: Arsenic is a ten minute movie about the risks associated with exposure to potentially harmful amounts of arsenic in private well water.
Take the time to learn how naturally occurring arsenic moves into groundwater, how it is detected, what can be done to remove it, and the current science surrounding the question of, "How much is too much?" Thank you for completing this brief survey after you have viewed the video.
