Arsenic In Water Supply

Posted on 14 November 2011 by KWBG

BOONE, Iowa—A study by the University of Iowa has found that hundreds of Iowa residents are drinking tap water polluted with arsenic and health workers are increasing efforts to have private well owners test their water.  There were a couple of public systems that had tested high for arsenic, but Boone officials say the city’s water supply hasn’t had a problem with arsenic.  Utility Superintendent Roy Martin says all city tests have results below the minimum limit.  According to Martin the next scheduled test will be in 2014.
