The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recently established a new maximum contaminant level of 10 micrograms per liter for arsenic in drinking water in the United States. Ground water is the primary source of drinking water for half the population of the United States. Several national assessments have found that high arsenic concentrations (above 10 micrograms per liter) are widespread in drinking-water aquifers in the western United States, the Great Lakes region, and New England. Moderate to high concentrations were identified in ground water in parts of the central and southern United States. This chapter summarizes national trends in the use of ground water as drinking water, and national estimates of arsenic occurrence in potable ground water. The chapter also briefly describes several studies on arsenic in specific settings and water-use scenarios; these studies illustrate by example the potential power of a regional approach to understanding and managing arsenic in drinking water.
