Mean Arsenic Levels in Water

Here is an interesting map that Stephen, our GIS Specialist, created using water data information from the EPA. This map shows mean arsenic levels in water throughout the United Sates with blue indicating 0.01-1.00 parts per million, going up to 2.34-4.88 parts per million shown in red. Take a look and see how your area rates! This map definitely paints an alarming picture as far as water quality goes. Even more reason to spread awareness for water monitoring and environmental health education.
