Methods of collection and quality assessment of arsenic data in well-water supplies in Maine, 2001–2 and 2006–7

May 28, 2020

The U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention, assessed the chemical characteristics and the occurrence, distribution, and oxidation state of inorganic arsenic in drinking water from selected domestic well-water supplies in Maine in 2001–2 and 2006–7.

The data collected provide support for evaluating arsenic-removal efficiencies of household water-purification systems and provide information to State and local officials that can be used in determining a water-treatment approach for the removal of arsenic from drinking water.
